Cold-Weather Cocktails

The chill in the air—and the magic in these drinks—will put a wintry spring in any step.

The Chalet Alpine: The Rum House, New York

Mixologist: Kenneth McCoy

The Details: The bourbon, Alpine cream liqueur and cinnamon evoke that après ski sensibility: warm sweaters, roaring fireplace and kicking back after a day on the slopes.

The Characteristics: Winter cocktails are the ones that warm you from the inside, whether it’s something containing brown spirits like whiskey and bourbon or drinks like hot toddies and mulled wines that are quite literally warming.
