winter cocktails torontoWinter cocktails in Toronto will help you get into the festive spirit and shake off those cold-weather blues.

You can find it made fresh to order here at a few bars in Toronto, but make sure to stop at Civil Liberties for the last word on the drink.

Otherwise, there's a range of classic seasonal flavours to get into, like salted caramel, spiced vanilla, Drambuie (not just Granddad's favourite anymore), anise and cranberry. There's even a cracking toddy to warm you up when that snow comes back for revenge.

Here are my picks for the top cocktails to drink this winter in Toronto.
