There's nothing like a warm, cozy cocktail to warm you up during the chilly fall and winter months. This holiday season, take those cozy cocktails up a notch by adding some spicy elements, like hot peppers, green chiles and even Sriracha! By the time you're done with one of these spicy cocktails, you'll be sweating!

From a super-spicy, bacon Bloody Mary to a spiced rum cocktail, these drinks will instantly make you feel the warm and fuzzies — even on the coldest of days. Oh, and don't think it's too cold for this margarita! It's spiced up with Sriracha, which will warm you up while you drink it. Just be warned, two of these are very hot so proceed with caution!

Spicy bacon Bloody Mary

Ingredients: 

  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles (not drained)

  • Dash of lime juice
  • 1/3 cup bacon (or pepper) vodka
  • Marinated cremini mushrooms for garnish
  • Bacon slices for garnish

Directions: 

  1. Place the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, chili, lime juice and vodka in a blender. Pulse on medium until the mixture is silky smooth. Add the salt and pepper to taste. If the mixture is thick, add a bit of water to thin it out.
