Warm Up With These Hot Drinks This Winter in New York City

by Kerry Jepsen on Dec 19, 2017 in Roundups

 
All right, Jon Snow, we get it — winter is here. While the cold temperatures may make you feel like the reanimated dead,  we have just the thing for that. Warm your spirit with some warming spirits this winter and come alive again over some of the best cocktails New York has to offer when the thermometer drops.

Olmsted
Mulled Cider
Over in Prospect Heights, Olmsted is embracing the winter season with make your own s’mores, Pendleton blankets for those who want to enjoy the heated backyard, and of course, soul soothing cocktails to warm you up. While Olmsted’s cocktail menu features a variety of cocktails served hot, we recommend that Mulled Cider, a sturdy concoction of house mulled cider, Aquavit, clove, and cardamom. (659 Vanderbilt Ave., Brooklyn; 718-552-2610)

B-Side
Hot Buttered Rum
A dive bar located in the East Village, B-Side is the spot for ordinary people to unwind with a game of foosball, play classic jams on a jukebox, or trance out to some random movie the bartenders decided to screen - you know, the best kind of bar. However, during the winter months they serve up one of the best hot cocktails around - hot buttered rum.  Sumptuous nutty butter with brown sugar is melted with hot water, in goes the dark rum, and on top a healthy dose of whipped cream. (204 Avenue B; 212-475-4600)

Baita
Parampampoli
The Italian Alps themed pop up is back at it again at Eataly’s Flatiron location. More than just spirits, this pop up has house made sausages, a polenta bar, and more Italian cuisine straight from the mountains. Relax over their Parampampoli, a rejuvenating blend of Barbera, brandy, Varnelli Caffe Moka, and dark rum. (Fifth Avenue Hotel, 200 5th St.; 212-937-8910)

Bar Goto
Yuzu Hot Toddy
This Japanese inspired cocktail parlor with a modern izakaya is always doing something amazing, and this winter, their yuzu hot toddy is one of them. This Japanese-style winter classic is made with two different black teas, honey, lemon and the secret ingredient, a yuzu marmalade which comes tableside should you want more of that citrusy kick. (245 Eldridge St., New York, NY; 212-475-4411)

The Duke of Suffolk
Brazen bartender, infamous spinner of stories, and a human encyclopedia of New York’s rich history, Guiseppe Gonázlez helms the Suffolk Arms in the Lower East Side. Known for their charismatic yet no nonsense cocktails, Suffolk Arms has a very twisted and inspired hot cocktail for winter - The Duke of Suffolk. The Duke of Suffolk is a cheeky combination of Earl Grey and English Breakfast tea and gin, topped with a float of cream.

Hudson’s at Pier 81
Tea at Sea
While a three-decker yacht may seem more ideal for summer you better believe it’s just as cozy and relaxing in winter too. With a variety of hot cocktails served up over the Winter season, Hudson’s wants you with them at the water. Definitely go for the The Tea at Sea to nurse you back to health; it’s a twist on a classic Hot Toddy served with Bumbu Rum, honey, cloves, cinnamon, tea, and lemon. (Pier 81, W 41st., and 12th Ave.; 212-630-8840)
