If you haven't heard, it's damn cold outside for us out here in the Midwest and the North. Winter is right around the corner, and we can very obviously feel it. But that's not all bad; winter brings sweater weather (Although, we often have to bundle that up with puffy parkas.), snow, and winter activities (the winter markets, skating, and sledding). It also calls for many ways to warm up, and that includes guzzling down hot drinks. With that last one, you can go the family-friendly route with hot chocolate, or you can go the boozy path with mulled wine and spiked hot cocoa (if you're 21 and up). And these Winter Solstice cocktails are definitely the way to go.
Whether you're throwing a party or just lounging around listening to holiday tunes while wrapping gifts, it's 5 o'clock somewhere, and the holidays are the perfect excuse to drink (responsibly) for most occasions. Winter drinks come in all forms, so if you like adult eggnog, hard liquor, or good 'ole wine and prosecco, there's something this season that will suit your palette. And with how busy and stressful many of us are right now, you're going to need it. These are also perfect things to whip up and bring to all of those holiday parties you're invited to (especially if you can't cook).
