“I could really go for a chilled rosé right now,” said NO ONE in February. I’ve got the cocktail; you just have to find the cozy fire to huddle around.
Everyone should be able to enjoy hot drinks on cold days. Here is a dairy free version of a classic winter drink. Make sure to use the creamier variety of canned coconut milk for this recipe, rather than the thinner coconut water that comes in a carton.
I fell in love with drinking lassis on my numerous trips to India over the years. If you’ve never had one you are surely missing out. If you’re dairy free you may use coconut yogurt, almond yogurt, or cashew yogurt for milk yogurt.
What a delicious spin on good old-fashioned lemonade. Got peaches? Then make Peach Lemonade.
A wonderful tangy, tangerine take on the super-trendy Negroni.
In the Northeast it’s just beginning to get colder, which always calls for hot chocolate in my book. Forget that processed packaged stuff that you may find on the grocery store shelves and make an amazing cup of real, homemade hot chocolate that will satisfy your sweet tooth and warm your tummy.
If you’re in a festive mood then you may want to give this delicious Pomegranate Margarita a try.
If you’re looking to serve a unique adult beverage this holiday season give the Moscow Mule a try. A Moscow Mule, also know as a Vodka Buck, is a mule made with vodka, spicy ginger beer, simple syrup, and lime juice, garnished with a slice of lime. Served in a copper mug this cocktail became popular during the 1950s vodka craze here in the United States. The Moscow Mule was invented in 1941 by John G. Martin of G.F. Heublein Brothers, Inc., an East Coast spirits and food distributor based in Hartford, Connecticut, and Jack Morgan, president of Cock ‘n’ Bull Products (which produced ginger beer) and proprietor of the famous Cock ‘n’ Bull restaurant on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
You don’t have to go wassailing to enjoy this traditional Christmas drink. Historical wassail drinks are completely different from one another. Some even use beaten eggs. Here is a blonde version. Alcohol is optional.
The Bloody Mary drink is very versatile. Some make it with beer or tequila instead of the standard vodka, but I think the classic version is still the best (with quality ingredients of course).
