Instead of: Sipping on something boozy by a fireplace
When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than cozying up to a fireplace with an alcoholic beverage that warms you from the inside. The folks at the LoDo-based German-style beer hall Rhein Haus know that well, which is why they go all out for the holidays. They’ve imported a fireplace from Austria that sits on the second floor, and it’s the perfect place to enjoy a glass of Glühwein, the country’s version of mulled wine. The Haus’ liquid echoes a traditional recipe and includes (*deep breath*) red wine, Asbach German brandy, lemon and orange peels, fresh orange juice, sugar, baking spices, juniper berries, and a brandy-based orange liqueur for warmth and aromatics.
