"Longer nights" is a positive spin on winter's "shorter days," and sounds much more romantic. And what better way to celebrate longer nights than with a drink that warms you from the inside out? 

Wintry drinks are easy, as they can be kept warm in a crock pot, and ladled out for large groups of people. No muddling or shaking required! Below are delicious ways to warm up your winter nights.

Hot Buttered Rum 

With real melted butter, this drink gives a hint of comfort food. The recipe is sweet like butterscotch, but with spices to give it depth.

Spiced Mulled Wine

This is a drink that would feel absolutely out of place in warm weather. The Germans have loved it for centuries, and with just five ingredients, what's not to love?

Chai Hot Toddy

This twist on the classic hot toddy is modern, global and delicious. And since hot toddies are said to help battle a cold, you can indulge in guilt-free seconds. Or thirds. Oh, who's counting?

 

Last but not least, you can use lesser known sweet liqueurs to spike your coffee or hot cocoa. Bailey's Irish Cream is a favorite, but Nutella lovers would appreciate the sweet hazelnut taste of Frangelico. And Kahlua coffee liqueur with a dash of cinnamon will add a little love to your mug.

Time to savor these long winter nights!
