One of the best parts of the winter season is obviously the food and drinks. During the summer, it's fabulous to chill outside with all of your family and friends, soaking in the sunshine and having cooling cocktails like a paloma or daiquiri. But when the weather gets cold outside, we all want to head in ... and hang out inside. Just because we're stuck indoors, though, doesn't mean that we still can't enjoy all of that time spent with loved ones. In fact, it's weather like this that gives us a good excuse to snuggle up even closer. 

That's why we're all about the warm weather cocktails, which means things like a hot toddy or a Mexican hot chocolate. But don't worry, there will be plenty of added warmth in your drinks this season thanks to spices and your favorite liquors. These drinks are definitely NOT for kids, so save them for your next adults-only get together. And while you're at it, don't forget to add a few traditional Latin cookies to your plate too.
