Everyone loves a cocktail. But when it’s freezing outside (and believe us it is bloody cold!) it just isn’t as satisfying sipping on an icy chilled beverage. Instead, take a look at some of these delicious hot alcoholic drinks that will warm you up from inside out…
1. Hot Flat White Russian at Grind
With locations in Shoreditch, London Bridge, Covent Garden, Holborn AND Soho you have no excuse not to indulge in this toasty take on a classic cocktail. Grind mix together house espresso with Kahlua, vodka Reyka and warm milk for this creamy, coffee-y delight. (Or should it be coffeeie?)
2. Winter Drinks at Rekorderlig Cider Lodge
Located in the twinkly Southbank Winter Festival this fairy light covered bar has been built to resemble a quintessential Scandinavian house. As well as delicious hot food, the Rekorderlig Cider Lodge will be serving up warming winter drinks including a hot version of their classic flavoured ciders.

3. Skye’s Hot Buttered Rum at Queen of Hoxton
A proud member of Shoreditch royalty Queen of Hoxton is a favourite hangout for hipsters, drinkers and dancers alike. In summer the vibrant colours and cooling cocktails pull the crowds to it’s funky rooftop but Queen of Hoxton also knows how to embrace the winter chills. This year the bar has taken inspiration from a Nordic Viking theme with fur, tents and warming booze to keep you toasty. Try Skye’s Hot Buttered Rum with a mixtured of secret buttery goodness and Sailor Jerry’s rum.

4. Rum Chocolate at Rabot 1745
Everyone’s favourite, indulgent winter drink gets a cheeky shot of delicious Saint Lucian Rum at Rabot 1745. This charming Cocoa restaurant and roastery located in London’s idyllic Borough Market is part of the Hotel Chocolat family and so you know the rum hot toddy is going to be extremely rich, indulgent and high in fantastic calories but hey – isn’t it time to get your winter coat anyway?!

5. Glühwein at the Tate Modern Christmas Market
There is no better sign that Christmas is coming than sipping on a sweet and steamy cup of mulled wine as you wander around a glistening Christmas market. Glühwein is a German mulled wine and you can nab one for yourself at the Christmas market at the Tate Modern located in the space between the iconic art museum and the river Thames.
