Tis the season to get cozy with a hot drink! If you’re looking to warm up with a fireside sipper, we’ve got you covered. First off, when’s the last time you had a Hot Butted Rum? If it’s been a while, you really should try one. We’ve made it super easy with our house-made mix. Just stir the Hot “Buttered” Rum mix (a dairy-free blend of organic coconut oil, brown sugar, and spices) with hot water and our Distiller’s Workshop Spiced Rum. Top with Cascara whipped cream and voilà. You’ll be warm and toasty in no time. But maybe a spiked hot chocolate is more your speed? If so, we’ve got two ideas to choose from. Those that prefer a spicy hot chocolate will like the Let It Snow. This one incorporates our Hot Monkey Vodka into some delicious Tree House Drinking Chocolate. Or you could stir the drinking chocolate with Mud Puddle Bitter Chocolate Vodka and peppermint schnapps for an oh-so-festive Peppermint Patty. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles for extra fun. Have you picked up a bottle of our Nocino? While it’s lovely to sip after a meal, it makes some pretty tasty cocktails too. The Café Cully is just one of them. This drink combines the earthy, nutty notes from the Nocino with robust coffee and sweet maple walnut whipped cream.
This next drink, the Comfy Coffee, mixes our Coffee Liqueur with our Distiller’s Cut Rum and piping hot coffee. It should be noted that it’s extra delicious when topped with Mud Puddle whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground coffee. Now, if you’re more of a hot toddy person, you’re in luck as we have several options for warming you up. We’ll start with a Classic Hot Toddy. Mix your choice of Brandy or Bourbon with hot water, honey, lemon, and garnish. Of course, we think everything is better with Ginger Liqueur. If you agree, try out the Ginger Hot Toddy. Feel like mixing it up? The Harvest Moon combines our Distiller’s Workshop Rye with Cascadia Liqueur for an herbal, earthy toddy. Not feeling so good? A warm, cozy mug of our Pear Brandy Hot Toddy with our zippy, organic Ginger Liqueur is just what the doctor ordered. The Pear Brandy is super aromatic and delicious with lemon and honey. Garnish with candied ginger or cinnamon and a clove-studded orange. And if all this sounds like too much work or you’re on the go, you’ve got to try the Trail Toddy kits. We cary four different options in the Bottle Shop— Classic, Citrus, Spiced Apple, and Juniper Pine. They’re made with organic tea and herbs and each one has a dehydrated garnish that comes to life (and looks darn cute) when you add hot water. They’re perfect for hikes, camping, or getting cozy at home. Cheers to staying warm!
