As you’re bundle up making your way out for a night on the town, you might find yourself wondering what type of drink will be the evening’s go-to. Well, we’ve got it covered. From boozy shakes to spiced rum cocktails, here’s a list of our favorite wintertime drinks and where to get them.

#1 Peppermint Junior (adult milkshake)

Why we love it:

Something about that minty deliciousness takes us back to nights spent sitting by the fire and watching snow fall through the window. This drink is ideal, because it combines two of our favorite childhood sweets into one—peppermint and milkshakes. With peppermint schnapps and little bits of candy cane on top the Peppermint Junior from this favorite local tavern is a simple way to enjoy a yummy wintertime drink.  

Where to get it:

Ted’s Bulletin
 505 8th Street SE
 Washington, DC 20003

#2 Jiminy Cricket (craft cocktail)

Why we love it:

Rum will invariably warm you up on a cold night. If you’re in the mood for something a little different make sure you pop over to a retro favorite between Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan and grab a Jiminy Cricket. This cocktail combines aged rum with sweet vermouth, aromatic bitters, canton and allspice dram for the perfect winter-time spiced cocktail.

#5 Cinnamon Spice Black Tea (tea)

#6 Fireside Creme Brulee (coffee)

Why we love it:

When we’re not trying new seasonal cocktails and craft beers, we’re drinking coffee. The Fireside Creme Brulee from Port City Java is a must on cold mornings before work. Stirring Ghirardelli caramel and white mocha powder in fresh espresso shots and topped with whipped cream, it’s the perfect pick-me-up.
