2. Hot Chocolate with Rum

3. Snowstorm Café
This ultimate spiked coffee calls for cognac, Frangelico and an awesome citrus-and-vanilla-flavored liqueur called Licor 43.

4. Mulled Red Wine with Muscovado Sugar
Wondering what to do with two half-empty bottles of wine? Pour them into a pot and simmer with orange zest, cinnamon, black peppercorns and a bay leaf. Then stir in some sugar and enjoy the best mulled wine ever.

5. Peppermint Paddy
