Some folks think of gin as their go-to summer spirit, but there’s no reason to put it on the back shelf when the weather turns nippy. To make it more of a winter-warmer, you just dial the recipe up a bit, to let the gin shine through. Like in these cocktails where the botanicals really come through and warm you down to your toes.

In all these drinks: combine the ingredients in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist a piece of the citrus peel the recipe calls for over the drink and use as garnish. Cheers!
