Cocktail Bar Durham – Cocktails for Cold Weather

At Blu’s Wine & Cocktail Bar Durham, we love a seasonal beverage – especially in colder conditions. As it starts to get colder out, our favourite way to stay warm indoors, at home or at the bar, is with a delicious, seasonally minded cocktail. Whatever your taste, there is a tasty cocktail out there for you and we are here to help you find your new favourite. In this blog we will be discussing some of our personal favourite cocktails for the colder weather.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

What’s better than a hot chocolate? A hot chocolate with a little kick! The Mexican Hot Chocolate cocktail is a spicy take on the beloved festive drink. The smooth, spicy tequila spiked Mexican Hot Chocolate is a rich, creamy treat that is easy to make and so delicious. It is a drink that is sure to warm you up on a cold, winter day.

Jalapeño Cranberry Margarita

Say a cheers to the Christmas season with the delicious Jalapeño Cranberry Margarita. This cocktail ticks all the boxes of a perfect cocktail: fruity, flavourful, rich and packs a powerful punch! No matter how you will be celebrating the festive period this year, we highly encourage making this cocktail a part of it.

Hot Toddy

The combination of whisky, honey, lemon, cinnamon, and cloves in a Hot Toddy cocktail is great for entertaining in winter and really packs a punch. This classic cocktail is simply made with hot water, whiskey, honey, and lemon, and tastes light and hydrating rather than overwhelmingly sweet like a lot of other mulled wines, wassails, or warm ciders.

Winter Pimms Punch

The Pimms Punch is a delicious classic and only gets better during winter! With the addition of brandy, it makes it a fantastic winter warmer. With a taste of flowers, fresh and dried fruit, and citrus zest, brandy is the absolute perfect way to add a festive touch to your cocktail.
