Whether you're enjoying some quiet time in front of the fire or entertaining friends, there are winter cocktail recipes that highlight the season's best flavors—all brought to you by Reddi-wip.

Perfect for a lazy Saturday morning, this Irish Coffee has a not-so-secret ingredient that will make you feel like you have a live-in barista: it's the Reddi-wip Barista Series Sweet Foam Coffee Topper. Simply brew your favorite coffee, pour it into your favorite mug, add a little brown sugar and whisky, and give it that decadent finish. If you're hosting out-of-town guests, this is a warm winter cocktail welcome as they wake up on a chilly morning. Waffles and scrambled eggs optional.

2. Iced White Russian

Warm winter cocktails don't get to have all the fun. Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you can't enjoy a cold drink, too! And what could be better than the cool, creamy deliciousness of an Iced White Russian? The perfect follow-up to a hearty dinner!

With vodka, milk, and coffee, Reddi-wip Barista Series Nitro Coffee Creamer elevates this classic cocktail to a new level. So be ready to pour a second glass for yourself, your spouse, and your guests. Even though some people don't like to mess with a classic, it's easy to have fun with this one: vanilla vodka, coconut milk, and decaf coffee are simple swaps you can use to make this recipe your own.

3. Double Chocolate Cinnamon Spiked Hot Cocoa

Hot cocoa is a go-to for anyone who has just finished an afternoon of skiing, sledding, or ice skating, and the addition of cinnamon whiskey in this Double Chocolate Cinnamon Spiked Hot Cocoa gives it a little extra kick. You can use your favorite hot cocoa mix to start—try swapping the Swiss Miss Double Chocolate for Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Sensation or Swiss Miss Rich Chocolate. Then top it with Reddi-wip or to really put the "double" in "double chocolate", layer on some Chocolate Reddi-wip and enjoy one of the best warm winter cocktails you'll enjoy this season.

If you prefer peppermint to cinnamon, use Peppermint Schnapps instead of cinnamon whiskey, and you'll have yourself some Dark Chocolate Peppermint Spiked Hot Cocoa. With Reddi-wip and a few candies, you can easily make this Frozen Snowman Topper for your favorite hot cocoa. It's simple: smooth a dollop of Reddi-wip on top of the mug and create a face with the candies! It's a good bit of whimsical fun to give your drink that finishing touch.

4. Tipsy Caramel Gingerbread Milkshake

It's always the right time for a milkshake! Ice cream, gingersnaps, and vanilla vodka combine with caramel sauce, ginger, and cinnamon to create the Tipsy Caramel Gingerbread Milkshake, an adult spin on a childhood favorite. A milkshake like this is no afterthought: it's the highlight of your next holiday party, Valentine's Day gathering, movie night, or gift exchange. And making it is as easy as throwing the ingredients in the blender. For the mocktail version, skip the vodka but add a dash of vanilla extract for that extra flavor.

5. Hot Spiced Cider

Picking apples with the kids, baking apple pies with grandma, sipping cider around the holiday table—the taste and smell of apples and cinnamon warms any home. For this recipe, simply heat your apple cider over the stove with some cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and ground allspice.

For Spiked Hot Spiced Cider, add a shot of cinnamon whiskey or bourbon, or even some sparkling wine. When you're ready to serve it, a tablespoon of Reddi-wip Barista Series Nitro Coffee Creamer in each glass will give your cider a rich, creamy texture that truly sets it apart. This warm cocktail works across seasons—you can whip up your first batch as the leaves start to turn in the fall and keep making it until spring!
