Brugal 1888 is one of my favorite spirits hands down. When I first tried it, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do because, when it comes to sipping spirits, rum isn’t usually my choice.

I must get cold around this time of year, because last year at this same time I rounded up some hot drinks to warm yourself up with. If you want even more options, here are some other delicious cocktails that are served warm for this cozy time of year.
Calientito ~ This hot pear cider with tequila that is perfect for fall. The recipe calls for Asian pears, which are possibly the best ones!
Trinidad Punch ~ Rum, chocolate, coconut milk, and vanilla … I don’t see how you can go wrong with that combination. (scroll to the bottom of her post for the recipe)
Blackberry Hot Toddy ~ This fruity twist on a classic hot cocktail is a beautiful color, so it’s great for a party situation. The tea and herbs sound like a great complement to the fruit and bourbon.
Amsterdam Hot Chocolate ~ Genever and Grand Marnier add a little extra oomph to already-delicious hot chocolate. Mandatory: top with whipped cream!
Hot Rum Cow ~ Rum and milk with just the right spices makes for a simple cocktail that’s reminiscent of all the creamy holiday drinks without all the heaviness.
Baby, it’s cold outside. Here are some delicious hot cocktails to warm you up. (And sorry for calling you “baby.”)
Mexican Hot Chocolate ~ I was obsessed with Mexican Hot Chocolate for a while, and this Food Woolf version that includes dark rum and maraschino liqueur was my favorite.
Verte Chaud ~ And while we’re on the subject of hot chocolate, it tastes pretty awesome with Green Chartreuse. Fine Cooking shares the totally simple recipe.
Scotch Hot Toddy ~ You don’t need cream or chocolate to have a good time (it’s true!). This variation on the Hot Toddy from Mary Queen of Scots is spicy and a little smokey
Irish Coffee ~ You don’t need to stock any fancy liqueurs to make good old Irish Coffee. This version from Chow sounds just right!
Hot Buttered Bourbon & Cider ~ I love Hot Buttered Rum, and this little twist from Epicurious incorporates something I love more … bourbon!
