Where Hot is Cool

Jack Frost is nipping at your nose. Who cares whether you throw on a chunky sweater, old-fashioned long johns or high-tech Gore-Tex. The style question that matters is what to drink to warm your insides. Here, four of the coolest hot tipples in town.


Glühwein
Drink deeply from this scented, ruby red house-made German mulled wine. It’ll warm you up and give you the fortitude to face your future as told by soothsayers reading palms and tarot cards at this new South City watering hole.

The Fortune Teller Bar, 2635 Cherokee St., St. Louis, 314.776.2337, thefortunetellerbar.com


Primrose Toddy
When overcast skies and the drab landscape of winter have you contemplating hibernation, this golden colored toddy made with a shot of lemon-orange spiced house-infused scotch will take you from bleak to bonnie in no time. Cheer up, lassie! Flowering primroses aren’t that far off.

Eleven Eleven Mississippi, 1111 Mississippi Ave., St. Louis, 314.241.9999, 1111-m.com


Winter Apple Toddy
Heat up some just-juiced apples, stir in a couple ounces of bourbon infused with apples and warm baking spices, give a swirl with the honey dipper, garnish with a cinnamon stick and lemon peel … a toddy has never felt so fresh, coddled or – dare we say it? – healthy. Say “yes” to the lavender-vodka whipped cream topper. It’s house-made. And it’s worth it.

Spanish Coffee
Piping hot coffee plus enough Kahlúa to take the edge off. A tall cappuccino glass rimmed with sugar and brandy and set ablaze. A trigger of whipped cream. Caffeine, booze, sugar and fire. It’s all the motivation you need to get your lazy butt off the couch.
