Winter Cocktails

Maya Jiménez

Traditional warm-weather drinks get a seasonal spin at some of North America’s top bars and restaurants.

From sangria served hot to a margarita made with roasted beets to a dark-rum daiquiri to a fennel-and-thyme smash, these 13 cocktails—concocted by bartenders from some of North America’s best restaurants and bars—are riffs on quintessential summer drinks, updated with winter layers like nutmeg, grapefruit, pomegranate and aged rum.

The results are warming and delicious, reminiscent of a season to come yet still firmly in the moment (no matter how cold). Cheers.
