Where to Find Delicious Hot Alcoholic Drinks in D.C.

by Lanna Nguyen on Nov 14, 2016 in Roundups

The season has officially turned, and there’s no better way to welcome the colder, almost-winter weather than with flannel and warm cocktails. Check out these drinks, which are perfect for heating up against coming chill.

In addition to the usual suspects (Hot Toddy, Hot Chocolate, Hot Buttered Rum), Bourbon Steak’s warm cocktail roster also includes the Pear Mon’Frere, made with Chauffe Coeur, Calvados, Kronan Swedish Punsch, fresh lemon, pear and spiced syrup. (2800 Pennsylvania Ave, NW; 202-944-2026)
 
A mix of warm and cold, Centrolina’s Hot Buttered Affogata combines two types of rum, hot water, brown sugar, house-made brown sugar simple syrup and a scoop of brown butter gelato, creating an Italian spin on the classic warm cocktail for $14. (974 Palmer Alley, NW; 202-898-2426)
 
The veggie-centric diner’s take on peppermint hot chocolate is dairy-free, topped with marshmallows and crushed peppermint candy, and can be made with Kahlua for some added kick for $10. (406 H St, NE; 202-367-9600)
 
Get the best of both worlds and enjoy the year-round rooftop at Takoda while staying warm with their Hot Toddy, made with Redemption straight bourbon, hot tea, cinnamon brown sugar syrup and lemon. (715 Florida Ave, NW; 202-525-1252)
 
The coffeeshop by day, restaurant and bar by night offers three warm drinks this season: Aguardiente Punch (antioqueno aguardiente, house cider, bourbon, honey and spices, $10), Colombian Coffee (ron medellin rum, hot coffee, whipped cream, $11) and Mulled Wine (hot wine, brandy, spices, $10). (501 Florida Ave, NW; 202-332-7777)
 
Off of the seasonal cocktail list, the Rye Bar Smoked Coffee is made with mezcal, Redemption rye, a shot of espresso, Pedro Ximenez sherry, brown sugar and topped with hot water and a fresh cream float and shaved dark chocolate with spicy chili. (1050 31st St, NW; 202-617-2425)
