Size: 12 ounces
Burn time: 80 hours
Inspired by the San Jacinto range of southern California, Norden’s Idyllwild scent gives off dry, woody notes of cedar wood and sage, with a heavy hand of vetiver.

Size: 8 ounces
Burn time: 60 hours
Guaiac, an ingredient produced through steam distillation of Palo Santo wood dust, is the main player in this warm, musky scent from Prospector Co., the Savannah-based brand behind some of our favorite grooming products. The glass container can be upcycled as a whiskey tumbler.

Land by Land No. 772 Oak

Land by Land, the New York atelier of Japanese-born friends Kanoko Mizuo and Tomoyo Kamio, offers a wide range of all-natural candles, made in the USA. Its Oak scent is a standout, slightly creamy with a spicy, woody base.

Size: 8 ounces
Burn time: 35 hours
Hand poured inside a concrete container, this balsam-scented candle, with mild notes of cypress and sage, looks as good on the nightstand as it smells.

Good Candle Spruce

Size: 16 ounces
Burn time: 50 hours
Good Candle got its start on a stovetop, when Jonathan Kroeger began making soy wax candles out of his Brooklyn apartment. Today, each candle is still poured by hand — including the spruce scent, which evokes an early morning hike through a dense pine forest.

1.  Irish Coffee

This is one of the iconic ways to enhance (and spike) your coffee and it will long remain one of the favorites. The classic Irish Coffee is simple: Irish Whiskey, sugar, cream, and the richest, strongest coffee you can make. It will warm you up and rejuvenate your senses unlike any other steaming mug can.

2.  Hot Toddy

How can you beat a Hot Toddy on a cold day? This is a drink that you can take in any direction you like to fit your mood, taste, or what you happen to have on hand. Rum, whiskey, and brandy are commonly used, but if you have not allowed heat to enliven the botanicals of a good gin before, you are missing out, because a Gin Toddy is a wonderful thing. Then, there is the tea, which can be any style you enjoy and an take the toddy in an entirely new direction.

3.  Bloody Mary

The ultimate drink for chilly mornings and watching the big game, the Bloody Mary is an ingenious creation that also comes in many varieties. You can make it as spicy as you like, mix in a different juice like clamato, or switch out the vodka for another spirit. My favorite option is the last one and I will opt for tequila for a Bloody Maria any day.

The Tom and Jerry is a favorite for the holidays and there are still a few old-fashioned bars that will serve this up for patrons on special occasions. It is best described as a warm eggnog with both brandy and rum. It is a fantastic classic.

 On the other side of the shooter flavor spectrum, this fun little drink mixes two favorite flavors of winter to create a mint-chocolate shot. Brandy is the third ingredient and you can use your favorite peppermint schnapps and chocolate liqueur to compliment it.
