This time of year, the cold weather and holiday spirit drive us inside to celebrate and reconnect with family and friends over cookies, and comfort food, and, of course, drinks. There's no better time to try a new cocktail recipe than now -- when you undoubtedly have a willing and thirsty audience. As such, we've spent this week sharing videos of how to make our favorite winter drinks. Have a look for yourself, then get out your mixing glass, invite a few friends over, and toast to better cocktails for all.
