That January thaw was nice while it lasted, but now that we're back on track with legit winter temps, we're thinking about how we'll spend a grown-up snow day (assuming the flakes ever actually fall). The essentials? Good company, a roaring fire (or a cranking space heater), and some wintry refreshments — spiked, naturally. For the latter, we tasked bartender Tim Burt of the so-cozy Tabard Inn to lend a hand, with a trio of cocktails that incorporate all the rich, spiced, smoky flavors of the season. These super-sophisticated concoctions are guaranteed to impress any guest you're snowed in with, but still simple enough to make at home with just a few ingredients. And we promise you can master these toasty, belly-warming drinks in minutes.
