Brrrr..it's freeezing out there! I hope everyone is staying as warm as possible and doing their bestest to bundle up. A few days ago, I threw out some suggestions of warming up with hot cocoa, but now since the windchill has hit a new low, I thought it'd be good to turn to something stronger. Here's a quick run down of warm boozie drinks you can enjoy and at the same time, warm up with. Drink up and stay warm, Astoria.
Sweet Afton's hot cider cocktail will do the trick on a cold day. Containing organic apple cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, orange peel, and a choice of bourbon, spiced rum, or brandy, it'll surely warm your bones. 30-09 34th Street, Astoria. 718.777.2570
I bet not many of you know that Koliba serves up mulled wine during winter. It's pretty symbolic to have this warm, spiced drink during holiday time in Slovakia and I always look forward to having it at Koliba. Truth be told...it's very potent. 31-11 23rd Avenue, Astoria. 718.626.0430
Even though it's not your traditional warm winter cocktail, I love the variety of stouts offered at Alewife. Nothing says robust, hearty and satisfying like a tall glass of milky stout such as the Left Hand, Dogfish Head, Alesmith and more. 5-14 51st Avenue, LIC. 718.937.7494
When it comes to Hot Toddy's, Snowdonia has you covered with this piping hot beauty (pictured above). What can be better than sitting down to this warm comforting drink and getting a Snowdonia stacked burger to satiate your hunger? 34-55 35th Avenue, Astoria. 347.730.5783
For something a little more luxurious, how about a Hot Apple Pie Martini cocktail at Bistro 33? Just looking at the ingredients of this drink warmed my belly, with fireball whiskey and firefly apple moonshine...need I say more? 19-33 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria. 718.721.1933
