Now that Winter is here, we are doing whatever we can to keep warm – and that includes sussing out the warm alcoholic drinks to do just that.
Baileys Hot Chocolate
Sometimes a regular hot chocolate doesn’t quite cut it. Simply add a shot of your favourite Baileys Liqueur to your hot chocolate for that extra bite.
Similarly, sometimes your morning coffee doesn’t quite wake you up. Add a shot of Irish whiskey to your coffee and add sugar to taste. And of course don’t forget the whipped cream.
If Irish coffee isn’t quite thing, you can add coffee liqueur to your coffee. Whether it be a flat white or a soy latte, coffee liqueur will work with anything.
This winter favourite isn’t as hard to make as you might think. In a saucepan, add nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and orange rind to your choice of wine. Simmer for 20 minutes and enjoy!
A slightly less common mulled drink but not one to miss. Similarly, add cinnamon, cloves nutmeg, orange and lemon slices to the cider and simmer in a saucepan. You can even add rum for an extra kick.
