4 Warm-You-Up Drinks We Love
When it comes to staying warm in the wintertime, a big plate of food isn’t all that can help. These local drink spots are creating some killer beverages that are sure to warm you up from the inside out.
1. The J.O.B. Hot Toddy
at J.O.B. Public House, 319 E. Walnut St., Springfield
The J.O.B. put its own twist on the traditional hot toddy, and it’s a good one. This warm-you-up drink is made with Earl Grey tea, Gosling’s black seal rum, organic apple cider, fresh lemon, orange slices and cinnamon sticks. It’s finished with a teaspoon of local honey and garnished with a lemon slice.
2. Spanish-flaming Coffee
at Aviary Café and Creperie, 400 E. Walnut St., Ste. 100, Springfiield and Aviary Creperie and Patisserie, 2144 E. Republic Rd., Ste. 120, Springfield
To create this drink, the rim of a wine glass is dipped in brown sugar and cinnamon, then a hefty dose of 151-proof rum is poured in. Next the rum is caught on fire and moved about, to heat the glass and caramelize the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture. Pours of Kahlua and coffee are thrown in with nutmeg and cinnamon, and it’s all topped with house-made whipped cream.
3. Hot Whiskey Harvest
at Copper Run Distillery, 1901 Day Rd., Walnut Shade
This drink is the only beverage that Copper Run Distillery serves hot. It’s created with cinnamon-infused whiskey, cranberry juice, maple syrup, orange and cloves. Thanks to the cranberry juice, it’s slightly tart with a lot of flavor and body.
4. What She’s Having
$9 at Scotch & Soda, 310 South Ave., Springfield, 417-719-4224
While this drink isn’t served hot, it’s made with Coffee Ethic cold-brew coffee, Rittenhouse rye, yellow chartreuse and Benedictine. The combo of 100-proof rye whiskey and caffeine is sure to warm you right up, and you’ll enjoy the flavors of strong coffee, whiskey spice, sweet anise and sweet botanicals all at once.Edit ModuleShow Tags
