to me, the perfect winter drink would be a Bloodly Mary, simple, warming and filling. There are others, but I can't imagine hubby using Chevis Regal is a mixed drink or any kind.Hot mulled wine used to be one of our favorites when we were younger...I just like my drinks a little less complicated...

From all we have been told, that is the only way to drink a good scotch. My husband and siL never use antyhing other than ice if they are drinking top of the line. Our grandson in law, who has done a couple of Scotland scotch tours either drinks his on the rocks or even without the ice. Now, if hubby is having a middle of the road kind, he might use a little water or soda...

I've done several Scotland tours, visited a number of the best distilleries, taken master tasting classes, and palled around with the author of several top books on the subject, and in my experience, the Scots do not drink their whisky over ice.

It was in Oban, on the west coast of Scotland, home of the second oldest working distillery in the country, where a friendly/gruff barman advised me that if I ordered my whisky "on the rocks" he'd have to throw me out.

He then showed me the small pitchers of spring water that sit on the bars in Scotland. When you order a whisky it either comes straight, in the bottom of a tumbler (think Lord Grantham in "Downton Abbey"), to which you can add a small splash of the water to "open the flavor," or it comes in a small whisky glass with a glass of water on the side.

But ice? That's for Americans.

When you still have nightmares of -30° before windchill comfort will always

Give me a glass of sherry, or kahlua and coffee, hot buttered rum, a hot toddy, etc. Anything room temperature or warmer.

Well, lucky for some of us, we are Americans and can put ice in our drinks if we choose to do so.

What a lot of Americans don't realize is that in the UK, they don't even ice their beer.
