So the polar vortex is kicking in and it’s officially cold AF. Which is great for Burlington Coat Factory investors but not so sweet for those of who prefer that our nipples aren’t frigid enough to cut glass.

But speaking of glass, there’s stuff that comes in it that can turn your whole afternoon around. Like rum and schnapps, for example, critical ingredients in this recipe for grown-up hot chocolate from our friends at Sailor Jerry.

G’head, stir it up, you’ll be making spirits bright in seconds.
