Telluride Distilling Company’s schnapps is our new favorite winter warmer.

Coloradans know better than anyone that nothing tastes better than a quaff of something boozy after a day on the hill. Abbott Smith, master distiller for Telluride Distilling Company, had this in mind when he created the aptly named Chairlift Warmer. This super-smooth peppermint schnapps relies on real peppermint (i.e., no chemical additives) and less sugar than the average version. We freeze a bottle for icy after-dinner nips and of course add a glug to a thermos of hot chocolate for a warm pick-me-up on powder days.
