Boston bars are raising a glass to winter with all the best cold-weather ingredients, like whiskey, citrus, cinnamon and maple. They’re kicking up your standard hot chocolates and coffees with added buzz, and shaking up peppermint schnapps and eggnog concoctions to get you in the spirits.
Coppa pours one out to National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with The Uncle Eddie, a raucous mix of eggnog, Jelinek Fernet, Yellow Chartreuse and St. George coffee liqueur — making holidays with the relatives that much more bearable.
Davio's Boston ups the ante on hot chocolate with spicy, smoky additions. A medley of flavors - tamarind, cinnamon, clove, star anise, sweet smoked paprika and tumeric - play nice with chocolate and bold mezcal.

Run, run, as fast as you can to Rosebud where they're giving their weekly shakes holiday makeovers. The bourbon-boosted dessert sips rotate flavors, like spiked eggnog or gingerbread topped with whipped cream and inventive garnishes.
