Not Just for Cold Weather

Think of the beverages we enjoy warm: tea, coffee, chocolate, cider. Here is the starting point for hot cocktails. Add spirits to any of these hot drinks—whiskey to cider; brandy to tea; rum to coffee—to create classic toddies, grogs and warming punches. For more depth, add splashes of liqueurs and other spirits, creating new taste combinations or emphasizing the old. In hot cocktails, the warmth brings familiar flavors together in unexpected ways. Enjoy—and please mix responsibly!
