Pittsburgh’s winter is beginning to set in at full force. Blankets of snow sticking to the sidewalks, temperatures plummeting, cars sliding, oh how we’ve missed it! (NOT) Because it has taken quite some time for the first big snowfall here in the Burgh, we thought we might be able to get away with a snowless winter. Who were we kidding? Now that winter is officially here, we are looking for the best ways possible to stay warm until those spring flowers start to bloom.
Some cozy ideas could include hosting a game night, curling up on the couch to binge watch netflix. (Bird Box anyone?) Host a potluck because let’s be real, we all want to eat well when the weather is like this. Now, what is one element that would make all these activities absolutely perfect? Cocktails. Not just any old cocktail, warm ones, ones that will fill your heart and belly with warm delight while you wait for that snow to melt away. Forever. We want to share some of our favorite Pittsburgh locals go to adult beverages to keep them warm this season. Stock your bar and get ready to get toasty.
