Winter Warmer Cocktail - Consumatorium

Winter Warmer Cocktail


As the days are getting colder and the nights downright freezing, I wanted to create a drink that cut through the temperatures and warmed people up from the inside. It needed a whiskey base which I paired with our in-your-face Ginger Simple Syrup (you can find all our Simple Syrup recipes here) and added some tartness with lemon juice. I then rounded it out with heavy touch of Absinthe.

Although my goal was to make a strong, whiskey dominated drink, it doesn’t come off that way at all. In fact, the drink is amazingly smooth. I give some of the credit to my whisky of choice, Buffalo Trace, but also to the offsetting taste of the ginger and lemon. The Absinthe just adds complexity and, while a little heavy-handed in the drink, works well.

Winter Warmer Cocktail Recipe

Rocks Glass

      • 2-1/2 oz Bourbon (I used Buffalo Trace)
      • 1/2 oz Ginger Simple Syrup
      • 1/2 oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
      • 1/4 oz Absinthe

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake until cold. Serve straight up in a rocks glass.

I don't know what it takes to become a professional mixologist, but I'm going to night school at my own home bar to achieve that status. For now, I'm an amateur cocktail creator who enjoys learning about new drinks and rediscovering the classics.


  1. There is nothing better than a glass full of hot drink on a cold, wintry night. I really like the Winter Warmer Cocktail Recipe. Can you please suggest to me more different recipes?

  2. Pour the bourbon, liqueur, madeira and honey mix in the glass and stir with a barspoon to blend. Add the hot tea and saffron threads and stir. To garnish, place lemon zest and star anise on a cocktail pick. Lay the cocktail pick across the rim of the glass.
