Three Whiskey Recipes To Warm You Up This Winter

Winter is settling in here in Colorado, which means short days, long nights, snow and cold temps. But it also means a season of outdoor fun, from skiing to snowshoeing to ice climbing, in my Rocky Mountain backyard. At the end of a day playing outside, however, I’m usually ready to celebrate apres with a beverage that warms me up. And for that I like to mix up a whiskey drink. Here are three whiskey recipes to warm you up this winter:

Monkey Shoulder

Monkey Shoulder is a blend of three different Scotch single malts and goes down really easy. It has a smooth and sweet taste that is mellow in a glass with ice or in a winter focused mixed drink. For the later I am loving this recipe for the Ginger Monkey, which is super easy to make and adds some carbonation with a bite of ginger and hint of orange.

Ginger Monkey

Ingredients:

  • 50ml Monkey Shoulder Whiskey
  • 120ml Dry Ginger Ale
  • 1 Orange Wedge

How to Mix:

  • Fill long glass with ice
  • Pour in the Monkey Shoulder and Dry Ginger Ale
  • Gently Stir and Garnish with the Orange Wedge

Hudson Whiskey

Another top whiskey choice for me right now is Hudson Whiskey. This distillery, which was created in 2001, is based in Upstate New York and is the first whiskey distillery in the state to open since Prohibition. Currently they have five different whiskeys they make: Baby Bourbon, Manhattan Rye, Four Grain Bourbon, Single Malt and New York Corn.

Try the Manhattan Rye in this recipe for a great apres ski cocktail.

Cinnamon Girl 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Parts Hudson Manhattan Rye
  • .5 part Cynar
  • .5 part Bittermen’s Hiver Amer
  • .25 part Luxardo Maraschino

How to Mix 

  • Stir/strain into Nick & Nora
  • Flame Orange Peel on top
  • Garnish with Brandied Cherries

Drambuie  

Drambuie isn’t a sipping liquor, but it mixes up into a tasty cocktail. The liquor is a blend of aged Scotch whiskey infused with heather honey, herbs and spices. It was originally created in the 18th century for Bonnie Prince Charlie by his Royal Apothecary. Today the liquor can be purchased around the world and is perfect for winter drinks, like the Coca Buie II.

Cocoa Buie II

Ingredients:

  • 2 parts Drambuie
  • 9 parts Hot Milk
  • 3 tbsp Hot Cocoa mix
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Kosher Salt
  • Optional Garnish with miniature marshmallows

 How to Mix:

  • In a saucepan combine all ingredients and warm over medium heat.
  • Stir slowly until simmering.
  • Serve hot.
