Glam Gatherings | Winter Drink Edit

From a batch of Egg Nog to a round of brunch Bellinis, we've got the edit of drinks you can cozy up to this winter.

Even though I missed my connecting flight and was late to the party,  I was able to get to the Bahamas to spend time with good friends (and my fave vacation crew).  Gavin made this perfect margarita with just what we had on hand. Only the best cocktails are born out of spontaneity in this way. Instantly I thought this would be a great drink to take into the cold winter months in NYC, to remind of vacation and the sun—but with a warm peppery twist that somehow makes sense for the season.

Here are four drink recipes for multiple occasions. Since we at Story + Rain are always finding a reason to accessorize, we’re also giving you 4 outfit ideas to pair with your tasty “arm candy”.  —TR
