The polar vortex that came this season has made staying inside more appealing than ever. What better way to avoid the cold than sipping a mulled cider by the fire, or by cradling a cup of punch at a warm gathering? In Winter Cocktails, food blogger and stylist María del Mar Sacasa, who has worked with Kinfolk and Bon Appétit, recreates classic libations and shares recipes for perfect punches and snacks that make frigid temperatures tolerable. Recipes incorporate bacon bourbon and rose-infused gin for a seasonal twist on classic cocktails. For a nutty take on hot chocolate that's perfect to share with your sweetheart this Valentine's Day, try the Nutella Melt.
