Have you found yourself reaching for the thermostat lately? Or, have you had to put on extra layers before going outside? These are both telltale signs that colder weather is now upon us. Though outdoor activities may be limited in the colder months that’s not to say you can’t enjoy quality time at all during this time of year, in fact, there are a number of ways that you can keep both warm and entertained. One way to do this? Indulging in fabulous cocktails, of course! If you’re visiting Boston’s North End, find excellent cocktails here at Nico, located at 417 Hanover Street.

If You’re Feeling Festive
Christmas is perhaps the most important holiday during the winter and one that calls for celebration, and one cocktail that is widely enjoyed during the cold, holiday season is mulled wine. Served hot, and relatively simple to prepare, mulled wine is nearly perfect for any celebration that takes place in the colder months of the year. The drink features hot red wine with various sweeteners and spices added to it to give it flavor, including orange slices, and honey, among others. Whether you intend to stay at home and relax or are hosting a lively holiday party, mulled wine is not to be forgotten when it comes to indulging in excellent holiday drinks. Consider this classic cocktail for your upcoming holiday celebrations!
Other Wintertime Classics
Though we admit this drink is good any time of year, there is something about an old-fashioned that delivers a warming, perhaps offensive kick that is more than appropriate for the colder weather. If you find the drink to be too bitter, consider some interpretations of the drink that call for brown sugar or even caramel to give it that sweet edge you’re looking for. However you choose to prepare your old-fashioned, there’s little doubt that it won’t go well with your wintertime festivities this year.
