Winter Cocktail

There’s nothing quite like a hot drink in the winter. Especially if you add some spirits. We have gathered some of our favorites here for you to sample. Be careful, approved don’t try all them of the at once. Or you just may end up with a killer hangover!


Kahlua Hot Chocolate

1 oz Kahlua
6 oz milk
1 oz half & half
Your favorite cocoa powder
Whip cream and chocolate shavings for topping

Make hot chocolate as you like add Kahlua and toppings. Makes one cocktail.

Perfect for that night by the fire, what is ed or a good movie night.


Ginger Lemon Toddy

1/2 teaspoon of grated ginger
1/4 oz of fresh lemon juice
4     oz of hot water
2-3 oz of whiskey (depending on how strong you want it)

Heat water and add ginger and lemon.  Let steep for a minute.  Add whiskey and garnish with lemon slice. Makes one cocktail.

Great when just getting out of the cold. Or when you have a cold!


Spicy Cucumber Martini

2 Cucumbers juiced but save half of one to slice for garnish
Vodka or gin
Dried red peppers
Flake sea salt

Juice cucumbers in juicer or use a blender and strain the solids with a sieve. This should make enough juice for 4-6 cocktails.  Crush peppers and salt in a mortar and pestle. Use 2 oz of vodka and 1 ounce of cucumber juice. Rim martini glasses with pepper salt combination. Shake vodka and cucumbers in shaker with ice and strain into chilled glass.

The perfect winter cocktail for that fabulous cocktail party.
