3 Winter Cocktails That Will Make You Forget It's Snowing Outside


Lizzie Munro

This is veering on blasphemous, but we must confess: We've had one too many mugfuls of mulled wine this season. Don't get us wrong, we love the warm seasonal beverage, but now that it's mid-December, we're looking for a fresh crop of cocktails to get us through to spring. Enter winterized versions of our favorite warm-weather drinks. (Yes, ice included.)

Because we're of the mindset that ice in a glass is always preferable to ice on the ground, we tapped the editors of Punch, a James Beard Award–winning online magazine, for a selection of winter cocktails so bright that they'll make us forget it's snowing outside. Spanning a wintery take on a classic summer spritz to a cold-weather variation on a tropical piña colada, these sippable beverages are essentially a vacation in a glass.

Keep scrolling for three delicious winter cocktail recipes straight from the pages of Punch latest cookbook, Winter Drinks.
