This boozy tea by bartender Elia Covino at Chicago’s Rebar in Trump hotel will warm you up during winter. “I wanted to make something to replace the mulled wine we would serve around the holidays that would appeal to the Hot Toddy drinkers and that spirits people wouldn't generally think would go well in a warm cocktail,” says Covino. “I knew I wanted vermouth to be a component, and the gin was a wonderful addition, adding more depth and a floral component. The milk chocolate elixir plays off both of those so well, and the ginger snap liqueur and honey add a touch of sweetness.”
Add your favorite spirit for a personalized sweet treat.
For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.“This cocktail is an ode to the ’85 Bears and the fleeting Honey Bears cheerleaders. I have vivid memories of watching them both during that season, even at six years old,” says bartender Christiana DeLucca of Chicago’s Formento’s. “It's also an homage to Buddy Ryan's 4–6 defense. That man is a legend, and this is my tip o’ the hat to him in cocktail form. Served Toddy style, this cocktail is all about embracing the fall season. Make a large batch, grab a thermos, and you've got the perfect tailgating cocktail to impress your friends.”
There are two ways to make this warming winter drink: One involves smoking your own honey, and the other involves a cheat and buying already smoked honey (a good option is Bee Local white oak smoked honey).

No matter how much we fight it, as the weather turns cooler, imbibers turn to pumpkin spiced lattes. But instead of heading to the coffee shop for an overly sweet version, use the slow-cooker recipe by bartender Norma Beekman of Lexington, Ky.’s Lockbox at 21c Museum Hotel Lexington, and make your own at home. Since the drink stays hot in the pot, you can serve it morning, noon and night. And for the boozy kick, you can spike it with a variety of spirits, such as dark rum, bourbon or Frangelico—the darker the better.
