With the change of the season so comes changes in drink habits. While we spent the fall imbibing comforting drinks seasoned with robust flavors, we now slowly move onto hardier fare enhanced with soothing spices, seasonal fruits and more hardy ingredients that bring to mind the fragrance of a blustery winter’s eve in the country.
For this invigorating period that we lovingly call “sweater weather”, Maria’s Package Goods & Community Bar is offering its New Seasonal Winter Cocktail menu titled “WINTER WEATHER WETTERS”, a warming drink selection to compliment and enhance these slightly chilly nights that slowly lead us retreat inside as an escape from the frigid nights. These bold bracers, created by Maria’s expert mixologists, are wonderfully blended soothing relaxers and nocturnal nightcaps meant to give one that warming inner glow for brisk yet pleasant evenings together with friends.
