As most of you know the best way to combat the frost and chilly weather is to drink more Beer. From sitting on the ski lift back to the top to pre-gaming at the tailgate on game day, beer is a necessity in the winter.
What do you prefer to sip on in the cold ?
Are you getting tired of drinking standard mainline beer brands? We know some of you are loyal PBR, Coors, and Busch Heads and hate spending the extra bucks on the quality craft beer brands.
This post was designated specifically for you guys, because we would like to invite you to sample a new wave of taste. The quality is worth the money I assure you.
Let's take a look at a couple of Nectar Approved Recommendations that you could add to your list of winter alcoholic beverages.
1. Spiked Hot Cider
This winter cocktail is a must for outside bonfires and social hangouts.
- Pour water into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and toss in the orange spice tea bags. Cover and let steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and stir in sugar, apple cider, rum, and 2 of the cinnamon sticks. Heat just to steaming -- do not boil.
- Ladle hot cider into 6 mugs and drop 1/2 teaspoon butter into each. Garnish with a cinnamon "swizzle" stick.
2. Buskey's Hard Cider, Richmond,VA
Ciders are not just for the babes. Whoever adopted that social myth or stereotype is just wrong. Bros, don't ever feel judged for drinking a cider. Ciders possess a refreshing taste some can be sweet some can be tart. Ciders are great because they hit different taste notes and are perfect for day drinking. If you live in Richmond, VA consider yourself lucky, go spoil yourselves.
3. Stone Smoked-Vanilla Porter
Porters make excellent beer choices for breakfast and brunch. For those of you that are looking for a roasty-coffee taste this is a beer to take a look at on the menu. We fully stand by Stone's Smoke Porter Vanilla Bean.
