If you don’t have a fireplace or burly lumberjack (or lumberjane) to cuddle up next to this winter, we have the next best thing: booze. Here, chefs reveal the coziest cocktails they love to make on a chilly evening.
Warm Bourbon with Honey and Lemon
“Use a small-batch bourbon,” says chef Joachim Splichal of Los Angeles’s Patina. “Or, if you’re in a warmer climate, make a Gold Rush with bourbon, honey and lemon, chilled and served up.”
Spiked Hot Chocolate
Chef Jon Keeley of Chicago's Gemini Restaurant Group warms up over hot chocolate spiked with brandy or herbaceous chartreuse. “That’s my idea of cozy,” he says.
