5 Winter Drinks To Try Now

When the cold finally arrives, these boozy beverages will keep you warm.

Our recent spate of warm weather tempts us to imagine standing on a sun-swept rooftop, sampling all manner of mojitos, margaritas and other citrusy concoctions starting with “m.”

Alas, Punxsutawney Phil supposedly saw his shadow last week, which means that we’re in for six more weeks of this cold, wet, dark thing called winter. Which we expect to arrive any day now. Fortunately, it’s a lot easier to endure with some of NoVa’s best warm cocktails, whipped up with ingredients like cocoa, cinnamon and tea.

Oh, and whiskey. Definitely whiskey.

Your afternoon pick-me-up just got a little more interesting with this warmer that’s a little bit chai, a little bit latte, and a whole lot of rum and whipped cream. Let’s see Starbucks try to pull that off.
