Whether you call it mulled wine, vin chaud, vin brulé, or glühwein you’re still glugging on a delicious, warm treat on a cold snowy day. Vin chaud as we like to call it is served all over the Alps and is a red wine which is flavoured with spices such as cinnamon, sweetened with sugar and given a zesty kick with oranges. Due to popularity across the Alps and taste it takes the spot as our number one ski drink.

2. Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate

Sometimes you can’t beat something comforting and well known and nothing tops a hot chocolate on the slopes. Whether it is a straight up hot cholate, with marshmallows, whipped cream or a more daring chocko rum (hot chocolate and rum) to give the drink an extra kick there is ample choice. You can also mix up the liqueur and add a shot of Baileys, Grand Marnier, Brandy, Amaretto, Kahlua or whatever you fancy!

A delicious concoction of vodka and toffee sweets, mulled overnight to create a smooth, sweet toffee infused vodka. Toffee vodka is a firm après ski favourite!

4. Demi-Peche

Refreshing and thirst quenching the demi-peche is the perfect short ski stop drink. It is widely drunk across France and the shot of peach syrup (used instead of squash) to give the drink a tangy twist. Only problem, this drink goes down a little too easily!

5. Génépi

Originating from France's Savoy region, Génépi is traditional herbal liqueur which is also famous across Italy's Aosta Valley in resorts like Cervinia and La Thuile. It’s a strong liqueur which tastes a buit like absinthe. It’s great to cleanse the pallet after a traditional fondue evening. Watch out- genépi is incredible strong so we recommend this for the evenings rather than during the day!
