Five Hot Drinks to Warm Your Soul

From chocolate and cream to cider and spice

 

Though fall in D.C. is all too fleeting, a collection of warm cocktails make snowy nights more appealing. From chocolate and cream to cider and spice, the ingredients in these hot drinks will warm you up in no time.

 

Pimandes at Poste Moderne Brasserie: The Winter Lounge at this Chinatown bar’s garden getaway is now officially open for the season, and with it comes a new collection of hot cocktails such as the cup full of hot stuff  pictured above, an enticing mix of chili hot chocolate, Whistle Pig bourbon and Grand Marnier with Pimandes chocolate, amaretto-whipped marshmallow and Marcona almonds, $12 (555 8th St. NW; 202-783-6060).

 

The Burnfield at Tryst: Served in a coupe glass, this wintry beverage on the lounge’s seasonal list features hot apple cider with Cabritos Reposado tequila, caramel, burnt sugar and lemon juice. Staying for rounds two and three? Try something from the Tryst’s Warmers and Hot Toddies menus, too (2459 18th St. NW; 202-232-5500).

 

Mulled Wine with Fall Spices at Dickson Wine Bar: On chilly nights, this U Street wine bar is likely to brew a batch of spicy-mulled goodness that pairs pretty nicely with the seasonal pumpkin creme brulee (903 U St. NW; 202-332-1779).

 

Hot Buttered Rum at Bourbon Steak: Mount Gay Black Barrel rum is infused with vanilla bean, ginger and allspice in this comforting cocktail. Enjoy it within view of the C&O canal or with Michael Mina’s equally buttery poached meats (2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW; 202-944-2026).

 

Pop Raisin Alexander at Ping Pong Dim Sum: With white cacao, half and half and chocolate popping candy, this $14 creamy cocktail, — spiked with Cognac and Pedor Ximenez Triana — is a classier (and intoxicating) alternative to hot chocolate (900 7th St. NW; 202-506-3740).
