With the weather getting colder, the season for hot drinks is getting nearer. The roasting summer days cooled by iced lattes are now gone, and we’ll be spending the rest of the year drinking hot coffee and hot chocolate. But during the chilliest months, it’s not just in the morning that we want something hot to sip on: Happy hour would be much more enjoyable if we could warm up with a steaming cocktail then, too. So, to solve that problem for you, here are our five favorite hot cocktails for when you really don’t want ice in your drink:
Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Piece of Apple Cocktail
Hot Spiced Apple Cider
The winter just wouldn’t be complete without sipping on a few mugs of warming mulled wine at a holiday party. This traditional drink includes all the classic spices — feel free to adjust the amount of honey to reach your desired sweetness.
