1. Hot Buttered Rosemary + Fig Bourbon Cider

This warm and delicious cocktail can be found on West Elm’s blog, and is a delicious contribution from Beth Kirby: “Not only does this warmy wintery cocktail taste great, but sipping a mugful might be even be more effective than hunkering-down in a big fuzzy sweater. If you prefer it virgin, Beth’s provided an infused cider alternative, too!”

This recipe is one of our favorites because it includes two super unique recipes that can be repurposed for other winter delights: Rosemary-Fig-Nutmeg Infused Bourbon and Spiced Honey Butter. Delicious!

Josephine Guicciardi is the nom de plume of our creative Evermine blogger. With romantic connections to Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved” love letters, it is in keeping with the blog’s themes of love and joy. The great composer writes the famous words “ever thine, ever mine, ever ours” to a woman who remains a mystery to this day. Two of the most likely objects of his adoration are Josephine Brunsvik and Guilietta Guicciardi, and it’s from these two women that Josephine Guicciardi draws her persona.
