With winter weather in full swing, there is a chill in the air, and the best way to stay warm in your West Miami apartment is by warming up with the perfect cold-weather drink. Whether you are relaxing on your own or with friends, below are the perfect drinks to warm your body and soul.
Candy Cane Cocktail
The perfect refreshing and warming treat for the holiday season, a candy cane cocktail is easy to make and hits the spot. First, you will need to crush candy canes on a plate. Next, take a chilled martini glass, wet the rim, and coat it with the broken candy. Then, in your cocktail shaker, mix some creme de menthe, cranberry juice, vodka and ice. Shake until just combined, and strain into the candy rimmed glass.
Warm Winter Margarita
Bring a new twist to your traditional margarita by creating the base with both mezcal and reposado tequila. Next, add one egg white and combine in a cocktail shaker with ice. You will enjoy the cool smoky flavor of the mezcal, which will give you a warm body feel. Strain into your favorite salt-rimmed margarita glass.
Sometimes going with a classic is the best way to warm up your evening. One of the most popular ways to spike up your drink, Irish coffee is easy to make. Simply mix your favorite Irish whiskey, sugar, cream and some potent coffee — the stronger, the better. Not only will this drink warm up your senses, but it will warm your hands on a cold day as well.
Hot Buttered Rum
Nothing says comfort more than a warm, spicy, sweet beverage. This buttery drink is the perfect accompaniment to a movie night or enjoying a quick snuggle on the sofa. The drink is a blend of honey, butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, cloves and spiced rum. Serve in your favorite glass coffee mug and garnish with cinnamon sticks.
