I'm looking for ideas of warm alcoholic drinks not made with coffee. Any ideas?
Hot Buttered Rum
1 Lemon Twist
1 Stick of Cinnamon
2 oz. Rum*
Pat of Butter**
In a mug or pewter tankard, add spices and rum. Fill with cider & float Butter in top.
Notes from Marlen:
There are versions out there using vanilla ice cream but I prefer it this way.
*I prefer dark rum but either will do
This one is good and easy to make in a crockpot!
2 bottles dry red wine, like Cabernet Sauvignon
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup water
1 square (8 inches) double-thickness cheesecloth
Peel of 1 orange
1 cinnamon stick, broken into halves
8 whole cloves
1 whole nutmeg
Orange slices, optional
Combine wine, corn syrup, and water in slow cooker. Rinse cheesecloth; squeeze out water. Wrap orange peel, cinnamon stick halves, cloves, and nutmeg in cheesecloth. Tie securely with cotton string or strip of cheesecloth. Add to slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH 2 to 2.5 hours. Discard spice bag; ladle into glasses. Garnish with orange slices, if desired.
cinnamon tea with Hot Damn(I believe it is a cinnamon snopts) or you could also make the tea and put tequilla in it.
my two favorites are a Peppermint patty, which is just hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps with a candycane stuck in, whipped cream and shaved chocolate on top, and a version of hot buttered rum thusly made:
Mix in a bowl 1 stick butter, 1 cup dark bown sugar, 1t each nutmeg, cardamom and ground cloves, 1.5t cinnamon. Mix well and refrigerate. Boil a mug of water and pour off enough to add a tablespoon of the butter mix and a tot of good rum.
The rum makes a lot of difference, so don't use the cheap stuff.
scant teaspoon sugar in a double old fashioned glass, dash of Angastora bitters ( optional) generous wedge of lemon, cinnamon stick, shot of bourbon and fill with hot water.
Squeeze the lemon if you wish.
There is also tom and Jerry....but I don't know how to make them......just know eggs, sugar milk and booze of some sort! LOL!
Here's a couple more...

1/2 cup eggnog
Ground nutmeg (optional)
Place instant coffee in cup or mug. Slowly pour boiling water over coffee while stirring. Stir in eggnog, heated until hot. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve at once. Makes 1 serving.
