Winter Julep (New Hampshire)

Renée G.


Calling all Powder Hounds. New Hampshire is the ultimate destination for winter thrill-seekers, and even established skiing as its state sport in 1998. After a brisk run on the slopes, you deserve the quintessential apres-ski brew, a piping hot toddy. Firefly’s Bistro in Manchester, N.H., serves up the perfect marriage of belly warming bourbon with freshly brewed mint tea and sugar, creating a hybrid that delivers the best of all seasons.
