The weather will be cooling down pretty soon, and what better way to warm up from the cool weather than with a hot cocktail? Mixologist Ashley Vinci is showing us a few hot cocktails.

Here's the recipes:

Red Wine Hot Chocolate

1 1/2 cup milk

1 cup red wine

1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk and chocolate chips. Whisk continuously until the chocolate has melted into the milk to make a creamy mixture. Add the red wine to the saucepan and heat liquid to desired temperature. Do not boil. Garnish with whip cream.

This recipe makes enough for 2 mugs so share with a friend!

1oz Jack Daniels Honey ( or your favorite bourbon)

1 oz honey

1 cup apple cider
