The List: Hot cocktails to help ward off the cold

Written by: mainetoday.com - - info@mainetoday.com

Winter is so much stronger than us. Between the unstoppable snowfalls and the abrasive wind that likes to slap us around, we’re little more than seasonal pawns at the will of the wind chill.

But we do have some defenses: SmartWool. Wood stoves. And alcohol. Make that warm alcohol.

The hot cocktail is our most indefectible tool to fend off the cold. It can be as simple as tipping a nip of Bailey’s into our coffee. And at bars around Portland, the hot cocktails keep to the classic – and they get creative. Here are a few to help keep to warm.

The hot buttered rum at The Grill Room, Portland, will keep winter’s chills at bay.
