The French Apéritif to Drink This Winter When You're Over Mulled Wine


Joann Pai

Every winter, there comes a point when the cold is just too much. Snowy weather excitement wanes as sidewalks that were once pristine and glittering with freshly fallen flakes turn to slosh-covered obstacles to traverse. As December gives way to January, it seems the only way to endure the freezing months ahead is to stay fixed firmly in front of a heater—ideally, with a warming seasonal cocktail in hand.

Enter Apéritif, the latest cookbook from best-selling author Rebekah Peppler, which is brimming with French-inspired cocktails to help you weather, well, this dreary winter weather. Spanning a bright and refreshing vert jus spritz to an effervescent red wine–based apértif, Peppler shares three winter cocktail recipes to turn to if you've already had your fill of mulled wine. Keep scrolling to find out exactly how to make them, straight from the pages of Peppler's shelf-worthy cookbook.
