If you’ve been shoveling snow nearly as much as I have lately, there is something to be said for having a warm drink to revive your spirits. Really though, a warm winter cocktail can soften the cold winter wind anytime, snow or no snow. Gracie’s bartender Kristi developed this lovely cocktail for just those times when we need a little touch of warmth to hold us over until summer returns. This winter cocktail recipe has a few steps, but we think you will find the results to be well worth the effort. Alternatively, we are happy to make one for you whenever you stop in to visit this winter.

Winter Cocktail Recipe: The Handwarmer


1.5oz Cinnamon/Honey Syrup
4oz Steamed Milk
3 Drops Chai Bitters
Steam the milk and cinnamon/honey syrup to create a light foam top. We use the steam wand of an espresso machine, but you could also heat this on your stovetop and whisk the milk and syrup to build a light foam.
In a heated glass coffee cup add Frangelico, Art in the Age Snap, Chai Bitters and top with steamed cinnamon/honey milk mixture. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon & place a whole Cinnamon stick for garnish.
