Winter has just started to peek its adorably mild head around town here in Los Angeles, and that means it’s the time of the year when everyone drives terribly and stays inside as much as possible to avoid the 60 degree light rain. And what goes better with weather-induced agoraphobia than a nice, strong cocktail or plate of comfort food in the form of dessert?
Since there’s nothing we love better than a seasonal cocktail and something sweet to accompany it, we’ve created quite a few holiday-time treats that’ll make winter hibernation not just tolerable, but delicious as well.
With one of us being Jewish, and the other wishing she was (we’ll let you guess which is which), we’re always annoyed with how few Hanukkah-specific cocktails there are this time of year, especially when compared to the overabundance of Christmas libations and treats. The Chosen Wine cocktail solves that problem, and tastes great to boot! L’chaim!
This deceptively simple recipe is bursting with warming winter flavors like brown sugar, clove simple syrup, hard apple cider and everyone’s favorite cold-weather warmer, bourbon.
