Nothing says cozy vibes during the winter season more than curling up beside a roaring fire and the smell (and taste) of an aged whiskey. For cocktail fanatics, whiskey is a go-to spirit choice during the colder months. Its warm finish perfectly contrasts with the crisp, cold weather outside. There are plenty of cocktail pods to choose from to delight in whiskey cocktails. Now there are two new options, the Holiday Spiced Old Fashioned, or the Cherry Reindeer, a seasonal twist on the Whiskey Sour.
Whiskey: A quintessential cocktail base for the colder months
The cells that line the mouth and throat normally send signals to the brain to warn it of extreme temperatures, like if coffee is too hot to be drinking yet. With whiskey cocktails, these cells are tricked by the alcohol and send those signals to the brain, making it feel hot as it’s drunk. This is why whiskey winter cocktails are great options for the colder months. They make us feel warm.
The best classic whiskey cocktail: Holiday Spiced Old Fashioned
We took the classic, beloved Old Fashioned and added a holiday twist to make it even more enjoyable. The Holiday Spiced Old Fashioned warms up your insides with a cinnamon and brown spiced whiskey cocktail with notes of Angostura bitters and orange as you cozy up to the fire. Enjoy this holiday take on the classic Old Fashioned served on ice in a low ball.
The best fruit-forward whiskey cocktail: The Cherry Reindeer
The Cherry Reindeer is part of the Nice Holiday collection and is packed with a balance of sweet and tart cherry flavor. When paired with the Red Hot Cinnamon Rimming Sugar, this drink takes coziness to another level.
