I joke with friends that I’m a “seasonal” drinker.
During the hot (triple digit!) summer months, I can’t get enough vodka…. just kidding! But, really, a lime ‘n’ ginger Moscow Mule or raspberry mojito is entirely refreshing when it’s practically too hot to be clothed.
In all honesty, I am not a “big drinker.” During the summer, I’ll enjoy adult beverages more often as it’s simple to create a relatively sinless cocktail (i.e. ginger kombucha + vodka + fresh lime juice = a healthier Moscow Mule with probiotics!).
Yet, now that it’s winter, a chilly cocktail in a frosted copper cup is not nearly as appealing. Plus, I seem to stereotype winter cocktails as sinfully sweet, which isn’t my style.
I want to give winter cocktails a chance, so I volunteered to mix up a holiday beverage for Christmas dinner this year. I used Foodie.com to create a collection of festive winter cocktails: from red and green Pomegranate and Rosemary Spritzers to Apple Cider Moscow Mules and Mulled Pear Sangria, I am beginning to think I might have a liking for cold-weather cocktails.
