The holiday season will soon be upon us, as will the frigid weather in some locales. It’s the time of year when patrons will enter your bar, some decked out in winter coats and red cheeks looking for a quick warm-me-up, while others come in simply looking for something seasonally inspired to warm their spirits. Turn up the heat with winterized variations on their favorite cocktails.
