Warm Up and Get Cozy With These Delicious Libations

The Holiday season is over and so far, I’m loving this mild January 2023 is bringing, but bone chilling temperatures are sure to be just around the corner. Now it’s time to relax and cozy up in front of the fireplace or invite friends over and gather around a bonfire. After a long jog I like to relax in the hot tub or melt away in the sauna. Sounds like it’s time for a yummy cocktail.

Check out these libations that are easy to make and will keep you warm all winter long.
