Ah, January in Missouri. There’s nothing like bitter winds, icy sidewalks and freezing rain to turn me into a barfly. And when my nose is running faster than my feet, I slip, slide and dash my way into the ever-cozy J.O.B. Public House (319 E. Walnut St., Springfield, 417-831-1158) for a drink that will warm me from the inside out. This winter, I’m loving the Snowmonster—also the name of my favorite Andy’s Frozen Custard treat. Coincidence? I think not. This kid-unfriendly drink has a base of organic chocolate vodka, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur and blackberry liqueur topped with half-and-half and dusted with whipped cream and J.O.B. Angel Dust (cinnamon and sugar). Although I usually steer clear of flavored vodkas, this one creates a drink that tastes like something between a grown-up hot chocolate and an iced latte. They’re dangerously easy to drink, so order a few. It’ll give the vodka blanket more time to take effect.
