Take a look at our Cookies of the World map and you'll find more than one recipe you want to make. And when you get thirsty after all that baking, you might need something to wash down all those sweets.
Heck, you might just want to turn the whole affair into a cookie-cocktail crawl, so we helped you out (because we like the way you work). We paired each one of the 46 cookies on our map to a drink that would go with it nicely. And no, we didn't pick milk every time.

These cookies and this punch aren't what you'd normally consider wintry: Instead, they're light as can be, aromatic and springy thanks to rose water and rice flour (for the cookies) and ginger and bubbles for the punch.
If these recipes seem old fashioned (in a good way), that's because they are.
Two cheers for cherries times two.
Tea time, Indian style.
