As they say on Game of Thrones: Winter is coming. The fall leaves are turning our favorite colors of gold, orange and bright red. Soon enough, there will be a dozen holiday parties to go to and many nights cozying up at home with your loved ones. Whenever the weather starts turning, let's face it: That means it is time to warm up with a hot beverage. And what makes a better hot beverage than one that is spiked with tequila or rum? Read on for seven of our favorite hot cocktails to welcome in the holiday season.

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.
