Hot Buttered Rum. This classic drink features a simple batter made from brown sugar, butter and warming spices. You can freeze the batter for up to two months, or if you don’t use it all up in drinks, spoon it on pancakes or waffles.

Extraordinary Hot Chocolate. This one’s rich and dark; serve it in small espresso-size cups.

Chai With Cardamom, Cinnamon and Ginger, above left. A classic combination.

Brooklyn, above right. It’s served chilled, but this blend of rye, dry vermouth and maraschino liqueur will warm you right up.

Blickey. The use of grapefruit juice, lime juice and raspberry syrup keeps things light, while the use of rye keeps you toasty.
