Winter is upon us – not lightly, but in ever-growing drifts and piles of fluffy white snow that just keeps falling! Happily, all this snow only makes this winter that much better for everyone’s best-loved cold weather activities.

In light of all this frosty bliss, Juniper Bar Market Bistro has teamed up with Sunlight Sports to help you celebrate – and keep toasty throughout! – all these special winter moments.

So go on, take your pick of one of our arctic-inspired cocktail recipes (below!), grab your winter recreational gear of choice, and head on out to enjoy the winter wonderland.

Mezcal Toddy

You’ll need:

.25 oz agave nectar (or honey)
1.5 oz Sombra Mezcal
.75 oz Green Chartreuse
1 oz non-alcoholic ginger beer
Hot Water

 

How to create:

Grab your thermos, and turn your water on to boil. In thermos combine agave, chartreuse, and Mezcal. Swirl until combined. Pour up to 3 oz of hot water into mixture. Stir, and top with 1 oz ginger beer. Feel free to add a cinnamon stick, lime paddle or mint. Or all 3. This recipe makes one cocktail. If you want to fill your thermos to make enough to share, double each ingredient and top with hot water.

Hot Cider with Milk Can Cinnamon Moonshine

You’ll need:

1 cup of non alcoholic apple cider
2 oz Cinnamon moonshine

 

 

How to create:

In a small pot bring the cider to a gentle boil. Turn off and pour into a thermos. Add the moonshine and you are ready to go with a hot beverage. Feel free to add an additional cinnamon stick, or a 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.

 

Hot Coco with Becrevoka

You’ll need:

1 cup hot water or milk
1 packet Hot coco brand of preference
1.5 oz Becrevoka liqueur

How to create:

Heat up hot water or milk, and stir and combine with your hot coco packet. Add to a thermos and then stir in the Becrevoka. This is fun with whipped cream, or marshmallows as a topping. This makes one cocktail.
This cocktail idea is to add flavor to the hot coco so feel free to add more or less of the alcohol if you are making this for yourself or others.

You’ll need:

1.5 oz New Amsterdam Gin
1.5 oz Sweet Vermouth
.25 oz Fernet Branca
Fresh clean snow

Brave the cold, and gather snow into your favorite rocks glass. Pour ingredients over and garnish with a mint sprig or lemon wedge. Enjoy.
