7 Hot Drinks in Denver to Warm Your Soul

More than just hot toddies

As daylight gets dimmer and the air gets frostier the prospect of sipping a hot cocktail to warm up becomes increasingly appealing. Find these hot Denver drinks in some of the city’s coolest places.

Boompa’s Cure-all: If any region knows how to keep warm it’s the countries of Scandinavia. Over at Trillium in the Ballpark neighborhood you will find Glögg, a warm Scandinavian Christmas drink, made of  hot, spiced red wine. Boompa’s is a mix of Housemade Glögg, Gloggavit, raisins and almonds. The name alone makes us want to try one (2134 Larimer St.; 303-379-9759).
The Bishop: This spiced drink contains orange, clove, cinnamon and star anise with house-infused port. Parallel 17 serves it up warm with a Saigon cinnamon stick. One sip of The Bishop will keep Old Man Winter away for at least another night (1600 E. 17th Ave.; 303-399-0988).
Cappuccino TamayoTamayo is a hot little place in Larimer Square and the bar wants to help you enjoy  the holidays. When itgets too cold to shop the square, go inside Tamayo and try the Cappuccino Tamayo made with 1921 Crema de Tequila, Patron “XO Café” coffee liqueur, hot espresso, steamed milk and topped with frothy steamed milk foam and cinnamon (1400 Larimer Street; 720-946-1433).
Colorado BFK: This hot number from the Highland Tap and Burger will warm you up and wake you up. The drink is simple – a cup of Colorado-roasted coffee mixed with a shot of Bailey’s, Frangelico and Kahlua. Simple, warm and delicious (2219 W. 32nd Ave.; 720-287-4493).

Hot Blueberry Tea: After an afternoon of outdoor ice skating at Skyline Park on the 16th Street Mall, head inside to The Palm for some hot drinks. Skip the old fashioned toddies and try the Hot Blueberry Tea with Grand Marnier, Blackberry Brandy, hot water and fresh-squeezed lemon juice. (1672 Lawrence St.; 303-825-7256).

Hot Sake: Over at Izakaya Den’s new location on South Pearl Street, guests can order hot sake with Asian “tapas.” In fact some sakes are best served hot. For “Atsu-Kan” or hot sake try Kuromatsu-Hakushika Tokusen or try it mixed with Chambord (Purple Haze) or Grand Marnier (G-ma Sake). Room temperature sake selections include Genbei San No ‘Onikoroshi, Otokoyama ‘Man’s Mountain,’ and Umenishiki ‘Hitosuju’ (1487-A S. Pearl St.; 303-777-0691).

The Warm ‘N Cozy: Over in the Congress Park area TAG Burger Bar keeps its customers warm and cozy with this mix of espresso vodka, Kahlua, coffee and whipped cream. A taste of this drink will wrap you up in warmth like a fleece blanket (1222 Madison St.; 303-736-2260).
