Hot Holiday Cocktails with Torani #sponsored #AToraniHoliday

Disclaimer: I received complimentary product and compensation for this post.

Do you live in an area of the globe that's chilly during the holidays? Isn't it great to sip a cocktail that warms you from the inside out when there's a chill in the air?

So, I don't live in a place like that anymore. These cocktails still hit the spot. When the AC is on and I'm snuggled up in my PJs, I sip on one of these cocktails and close my eyes and can almost picture snow on the ground.

If you're like me, your liquor cabinet isn't as robust as you might like. However, with Torani syrups, you can amp up your cocktail game in a big way. For the following recipes I used White Chocolate, Blood Orange, Belgian Cookie, and Caramel syrups. I definitely suggest getting a few pumps for easy access. You could even make a cool cocktail station for a party with various flavors lined up.

I portioned these out for single servings, but I imagine they'd be wonderful in three separate crock pots, decorated with holiday flair on your party table! To make a big batch, it's easy enough to adjust. However, be careful with flavorings and spices. Err on the side of not a total 1:1 ratio for larger portions. Add slowly, tasting between additions. For example, if you're making 10 times as much of the Hot White Chocolate, add 2 pumps at a time of White Chocolate Syrup and taste to make sure the flavor isn't too concentrated.

White Hot Chocolate

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 pump (~1 tbsp) Torani White Chocolate syrup
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 oz vanilla vodka

-Heat milk and cream to desired (hot!) temp and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Serve with whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg or cinnamon.

Mulled Wine

  • 1 cup sweet red wine
  • 1 tsp mulling spices
  • 1 pump Torani Blood Orange syrup
  • 1/2 oz blackberry brandy

-Mix together the wine and mulling spices. Heat in a small saucepan or in the microwave until hot. Let the wine heat, then let sit for a few minutes to let the flavors blend. Re-heat if needed, and stir in the remaining ingredients.

Caffeinated Cookie

  • 1 cup coffee, brewed
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 half pump Torani Belgian Cookie syrup
  • 1 half pump Torani Caramel syrup
  • 1 oz whiskey

-Mix all ingredients in a mug and serve while the coffee is still hot.
