Winter Cocktails

This cute little app landed in my email and I thought it might amuse you:

And it came along with a few extra drink recipes. Enjoy!

Chocolate Snowball

2 ounces coconut rum
2 ounces  Irish cream
1 ounces hazelnut liqueur
3 1/2 ounces melted chocolate
3 1/2 ounces cream
1 dash chocolate syrup

Place the chocolate syrup around the glass then place the other ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Strain into glass.

Spring Fever

3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce mango syrup
1 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
2 ounces blood orange juice

Shake well over ice cubes in a shaker, and strain into a collins glass half-filled with crushed ice.

Winter Breeze

1 ounce creme de cacao
1 ounce vanilla schnapps
1 ounce Irish cream

Pour liquors into a beer mug, and fill with milk. Stir, and serve.

So tell me, do you drink different things in winter than in summer, or are there favorites you drink all year long? I'm much more likely to drink Margaritas in the summer, while Bailey's seems like a winter drink to me. On the other hand, there are some drinks that are fine all year long. My morning coffee, for example. Or a nice glass of wine. You?
