Boozing Below Freezing: Winter Cocktails to Keep You Warm

Between the cold weather and grey skies, winter inevitably has very little patio opportunity, which makes the work week feel like all work and no play. The refreshing feeling of after work drinks feels like a joyful but distant memory during this dark and dreary time of the year. It’s easy to think of fun and invigorating summer cocktails to try at after work happy hour, but what happens if you’re in the mood to indulge in a beverage or two to boost your spirits in the off season? Nothing like channeling some après-ski vibes in between the ice storms and polar vortexes!

White Oaks is here to make all of those dreams come true with three delicious cocktail recipes to warm you up to winter courtesy of our restaurant manager and mix master Lexi Knox. Get cozy and channel your inner mixologist and try making these refreshing cocktails at home. Or, if bartending isn’t really your thing, all of these cocktails are currently featured on the menu at White Oaks!
