Five Hot Whiskey Drinks To Keep You Warm

With the snow and wintry temperatures arriving, you probably want to hibernate at home in your jammies and grab a hot drink.  Nothing turns up the heat faster than a whiskey-spiked cocktail, so we’ve rounded up five hot whiskey drink recipes from popular blog sites to keep you warm and toasty all winter long.  Mix them up with our Roots and Wings Distillery's whiskey style spiritsRebel, Sidekick, or Johnny Handsome – all distilled from sweet corn grown at our distillery farm.

Almond Milk Chai With Whiskey And Orange

Topping the list is this fresh spin on a chai tea – a cozy, tasty vegan chai whiskey cocktail made from almond milk steeped with chai tea, whiskey and orange juice.  It’s just the right balance of spice, sweetness and boozy warmness.

Cocktail Recipe: rhubarbarians.com.
Whiskey Recommendation: Rebel - Notes of honey and orangey-citrus with a hint of smokiness.

Beat The January Blues With A Whiskey Tasting

January seems to get a bad rap for feeling like the Monday of all the months. It’s rather dull at this time of year with the drab weather, dark days, and the pressure of resolutions with DOs and DON’Ts for eating, working, and fitness.  Worse yet, no drinking for the dreaded Dry January which sounds like a long Monday of no fun. If you’re anything like us, why punish yourself and make an already bleak month worse?

Instead, we’re making it a Jan-NEW-ary because there’s plenty to be happy about! To break up the January Blues, we are open all month from 12 to 5pm, Friday to Sunday. And, we’ve even thrown in a mood-lifting event that you should join on January 18th.

Back by popular demand, we are hosting our second Meat & Neat whiskey tasting paired with a scrumptious charcuterie spread on January 18th, 5:30 to 9 pm.  Come experience our range of premium spirits in various whiskey style expressions including the new bourbon style spirit called Johnny Handsome. You’ll also get to sample what we still have in barrels, while savouring a fiesta of gourmet meats, cheeses, dips and artisan accompaniments.

Tickets at Eventbrite. Ticket holders also get 10% off purchases at the distillery.
