Cold Weather Cocktails – Rimann Liquors

Cold Weather Cocktails

January 1, 2011

We dress for the cold weather so we should also consume things that warm us up!  For colder days you need drinks that pack a punch and warm you up but with a subtlety that won’t leave your throat on fire.  We have chosen several to recommend.

Hot Toddy

Hot Toddy

A toasty classic!

  • 1 oz brandy or whiskey
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ¼ lemon
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tea bag

Coat the bottom of a mug with honey and then add the liquor and the juice of the lemon quarter. On the side, heat water in a teakettle and add the tea bag to make hot tea. Pour the steaming tea into the glass and stir!

Hot Buttered Rum

A spicy, sweet, cozy cocktail you’ll love to cuddle up with. The easiest way to make it is combine Hot Buttered Rum Mix with 2 oz of your favorite dark rum and boiling water.


  • 2 oz Irish whiskey
  • 1 oz Italian vermouth
  • 1 dash orange bitters

This delightfully smooth and mellow drink is served cold but it’s sure to warm you right up. Stir well with cracked ice then strain into a chilled cocktail glass, settle in and enjoy.

Cocoa Raspberry Heaven

This one was aptly named. It’s full of the kind of warmth only berries and chocolate can bring.

  • 1 oz plus 1 tsp raspberry liqueur (Chambord is nice)
  • 1 oz white crème de cacao
  • 8 oz hot chocolate
  • Whipped cream
  • 1 fresh raspberry (optional)

Pour the raspberry liqueur and white crème de cacao into a cappuccino mug and then add already mixed hot chocolate and stir. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, drizzle an extra teaspoon of Chambord on top and finish it off with a fresh raspberry.

Cold Evening Nectar

1 part orange vodka

half part premium orange brandy

half part honey

three quarters part hot water

half part fresh lemon juice

Pinch star anise powder

Add the honey and hot water to a cocktail shaker and stir to dissolve. Add remaining ingredients and ice, shake well. Strain into a glass with a handle. Garnish with star anise.
