One of winter's finer pleasures is a perfectly spiced steaming cocktail to lull the mind. From the Apple Malt Toddy to the Spiced Cider Bomb, here are six of our favorites.
St. Bernards used to patrol the Swiss Alps looking for mountaineers in peril, with a small barrel of brandy affixed to their collars to warm the person up. Of course, the alcohol actually depressed the stranded victim's body temperature even further, but the notion of a warming cocktail on a chilly day has transfixed us ever since. Forget about scaling a peak and cozy up at home with these best wintry drinks instead. If you've got a big, furry dog to snuggle with, all the better.
