You know that song you hear around holiday time that goes, “it’s the most wonderful time of year?” Christmas probably comes to mind when you hear that melody, but for me, it’s the thought of cold-weather cocktails that comes with the season change. Cascade Blonde American Whiskey has shared with me two delicious cold-weather cocktails that I think anyone with an affinity for Fall/Winter drinks will love.

Below you will find a cider and hot toddy recipe to try out during the colder months.

Cold-Weather Drink Recipes

Cascade Cider

Is there anything better than a good cider? No, unless you have a little whiskey to go with it.

Shake whiskey and cider over ice. Strain into cup with fresh ice. Squeeze small orange wedge into drink and drop into cup.

Cascade Toddy

Have a cold or just need a hot drink with a kick? A hot toddy is always a good choice. It’s great to enjoy on those cold, wintery evenings.

About Cascade Blonde American Whiskey

Cascade Blonde American Whiskey isn’t your granddaddy’s drink. It’s a new kind of whiskey, finished with water straight from Tennessee’s own Cascade Spring. It’s lighter in color and more laid-back in attitude, meant to be enjoyed while the sun’s still up and the day is winding down. Best when shared, of course, because we’re all friends out here.
