The dead of winter. Cold and dreary. Thick snow outside. How do you keep warm? A hot buttered rum cocktail wouldn’t hurt. Better yet, winter activities and sports that keep you moving and warm while keeping you from Covid-19’s reach.

Lucky for you, there’s so much you can do during the winter months. For instance, ice skating, cross-country skiing, hitting the hiking trails, skiing/snowboarding, snowshoeing or even tobogganing. Whatever grabs your fancy and feels most appropriate for the day.

After a long day in the cold outside, come back to a warming cocktail as you reflect on your day and plan more wintery adventures.
