Hot Alcoholic Drinks

We rely on at least one of these tasty hot alcoholic drinks at every fall and winter party we host.

Actually, we rely on them even when we're not hosting a party. There's nothing like curling up with a steamy mug of deliciousness after a long, cold day.

But back to parties. These drinks are festive, easy and guaranteed to make your guests feel warm and fuzzy. 

Be sure to have some hearty food on hand. These hot drinks will really sneak up on you.

Hot apple cider is perfect for a crowd. It's a cinch to make and spiking is optional. 

This hot buttered rum is prepared from a batter that's sinfully rich. 

Mulled wine is a great companion to a warm fire and lively conversation. Really nice for small gatherings.

Glühwein is Germany's version of mulled wine. Spicy and delicious!

Swedish glögg combines two kinds of wines, brandy or vodka, spices, and almonds. 

Vin chaud is the French version of mulled wine. Merlot and cognac ... mmm.

We have two Irish coffee recipes. One is traditional and the other calls for an Irish cream liqueur.

Have you ever tried a Keoki coffee? We have recipes for Mexican, Belgian, and Jamaican coffees too.
