November 28, 2016



Take a break from combing your beard and warm up by the fire with these 10 toasty cocktails! From Toddy’s, mulled wine, to your classic ciders – we’ve got a variety of spiked steamers! So pull of your mittens, pull out the crockpot, and let’s get into the Christmas Spirit, shall we?


mulled wine recipe

Christmas Market Style Glühwein (Mulled Wine)

Christmas Market Style Glühwein is a festive staple. With its gentle spice, delicate sweetness and warming nature, a true Christmas Market experience is not without a steaming cup of Glühwein to keep your chilly hands warm… [RECIPE]


hot buttered rum

Hot Buttered Rum

Hot Buttered Rum is a warm, spicy, cozy cocktail to go along with your festive tunes. This recipe packs a rum punch, but balances it with dark brown sugar and fluffy whipped cream. [RECIPE]


blood orange mulled wine

Blood Orange Mulled Wine 

The smell of mulled wine alone is enough to make the home feel Christmassy.. [RECIPE]


mulled pear and ginger cocktail christmas recipe

Mulled Pear and Ginger

If you’re not a fan of mulled wine or fancy something different, this deeply spiced pear and rum drink will warm you up nicely.. [RECIPE]




 Sugar Free Mulled Wine

This recipe is for a traditional mulled wine to be served hot, perfect for this chilly weather. The more popular mulling spices are star anise, cloves, cinnamon and/or nutmeg but I also like the addition of cardamom, vanilla bean and bay leaves.. [RECIPE]



Black Cherry Bourbon Hot Chocolate

Hot beverages can be just as exciting as iced ones, especially when you add a little liqueur! But I’m tired of seeing the same of thing over and over again, so screw the Irish Cream, hold the schnapps, and nix that whipped vodka. It’s time to really kick hot chocolate up a notch! [RECIPE]


hot rum horchata

Hot Rum Horchata

I love how this rice based drink can be served chilled over ice or warmed up like a creamy frothy (delicious) substitute for eggnog (which makes me gag- so this is a much better choice and DAIRY FREE!!!). With the chill around here right now, I am going the hot route with a liberal glug of rum or even bourbon to warm me up.. [RECIPE]



Cinnamon Bourbon Hot Toddy

Hot toddies and bourbon go together like PB&J – trust me. This version is special because it starts with a homemade simple syrup that’s naturally sweetened with maple syrup. It gets its flavor with an infusion of both cinnamon and chilies.. [RECIPE]




Blackberry Mulled Wine

This mulled wine is perfect for the holidays. It just smells like Christmas. Even if one doesn’t enjoy wine, just having this simmering on your stove top as guests arrive will put everyone in the Christmas spirit. [RECIPE]


hot buttered rum apple cider

Hot Buttered Rum Apple Cider

This Hot Buttered Rum with Apple Cider is as wonderful to smell as it is to taste and when you make it, it creates this amazing Christmasy feeling that will not disappoint! [RECIPE]
