Old man winter is knocking at the door. Outside he is sending a chilly breeze and cooling down the night air. Colorful leaves are falling from trees and blanketing the ground. Landscape maintenance changes from mowing grass to gathering leaves. After a day sprucing up the yard, relaxing with a beverage is in order. Sipping a hot mulled one to warm up with hits the spot. All the better when it has a lovely color of sunshine. A Liquid Gold cocktail is one to sip on to brighten a cold winter night.
There are more beverages for the winter season. They can be found in a new book called Winter Cocktails. It is a collection of hot toddies, mulled ciders, punches, and more. There are also recipes for snacks for serving at parties. I’ve already bookmarked several recipes including Cheese-Crusted Olives and Holly Jolly Punch. I think they would be a big hit for a holiday celebration.
There is more to the book than recipes. You can find lists for pantry and bar basics, kitchen tools and serveware guides, plus sources for unique ingredients. Most of the recipes feature a photo and the photography is wonderful. It’s a book to enjoy from cover to cover. It would also be a nice gift for anyone who enjoys cocktails and entertaining.
What is your favorite beverage for winter? I’ve always had Glühwein at the top of my list. Thanks to this book I’ll have many more to try and see if they are contenders too. One that is already on my winter sipping list is Liquid Gold. It is pineapple juice mulled with spices along with dark rum and brandy. The spiced pineapple garnish is a must. I’ll make extra of it next time to save for snacking on throughout the day.
