10 Winter Beverages in Gettysburg

When there’s a chill in the air, we all need a little winter warm up. Whether its a hot drink or a coffee-infused beverage, these 10 drinks around Gettysburg are the perfect way to escape the cold this season.

Snickerdoodle Latte – Ragged Edge Coffee House

Grab your laptop or your favorite book and cozy up at Ragged Edge Coffee House. Feel the spirit of the season with their signature snickerdoodle latte. It’s like a cookie in a cup!

The Fix – Fourscore Beer Co.

If you can’t decide between coffee or beer, we have you covered! The Fix at Fourscore Beer Co. uses Ragged Edge’s coffee to make the perfect American Brown Ale. You could also pick up a flight and sample some of the several beers they have on tap.

Mulled Cider – Ploughman Cider

With a taproom located in the heart of downtown on Lincoln Square, Ploughman Cider prides itself on using Adams County apples in their signature ciders. Warm up with their straight mulled cider or get creative by adding a shot of bourbon, rye, rum or tequila.

Sweater Weather – Gettysburg Eddie’s

Gettysburg Eddie’s is a tribute to the town’s baseball hall of famer, Edward Stewart Plank. Wings, burgers, salads, soups – Gettysburg Eddie’s serves it all including some seasonal beverages like Sweater Weather. This twist on a traditional Moscow mule adds in pomegranate vodka and seeds.

Hot Chocolate – Gettysburg Baking Company

Of course this list wouldn’t be complete without hot cocoa! Gettysburg Baking Company is a great place to grab this winter warm up. Top it with whip cream and don’t forget to grab a baked good or loaf of bread for later.

Hot Buttered Rum – Mason Dixon Distillery

Hot buttered rum is a winter staple. Mason Dixon Distillery whips up these delicious drinks to chase away the chill in the colder months.

Espresso Martini – One Lincoln

Espresso vodka, Godiva dark chocolate liquor, espresso, cream and a dash of cinnamon on top – sounds delicious, right? The espresso martini at One Lincoln in the Gettysburg Hotel is calling your name!

Irish Coffee – O’Rorke’s Restaurant and Irish Pub

It’s like regular coffee only better. O’Rorke’s serves the classic drink – coffee with Baileys Irish Cream. It’s a great way to warm up and since it’s technically coffee, you can drink it at any time of day.

Mulled Wine – Adams County Winery

Adams County Winery uses their Yankee Blue with a hint of vanilla and spice in their mulled wine. It’s like a spiced blueberry pie and a delicious delight this season.

Hot Whiskey – Garryowen Irish Pub

Trying to chase a cold? Try the hot whiskey at the Garryowen Irish Pub. Made with whiskey, hot water, lemon and cloves you’ll be feeling better than ever after this drink. And the Garryowen has more than 100 whiskeys to choose from!
