Winter is here, and so are the frigid temps. That means bars are heating up their cocktails to offer relief for frozen hands and rosy cheeks. Find a winterized patio stocked with fire pits and blankets to accompany a thermos of mulled cider, or head indoors to snuggle in an armchair with a hot toddy.
Many establishments across the city are providing respite from the cold with creative hot cocktails of all kinds. There are tea-based tipples, decadent liquid desserts, warm punches, spiced wines, hot sangrias, and more. Many spots also put their own spins on classic cold weather drinks, like the Balkan hot toddy at Ambar and hot chocolate topped with a foie-gras butter ball at Buffalo & Bergen.
