Five Perfect Winter Drink Recipes And Their Lipstick Complements

Where’s the rum?

The next time you're invited to a holiday get together, be bold and offer to handle the drink situation. Picking up a bottle of wine and calling it a day is efficient, yes, but let's make it a point to impress with the year winding down. (Go out with a bang, right?) Plus, as winter sets in, cocktails designed to sip provide a comfort simple glasses of vino cannot.

Ahead, five rum-infused cocktail recipes straight from some iconic alcohol brands. They're warm in color and warming to the senses. But don't stop there: Do the most and pair your lipstick with your drink of choice. Luckily for you, we've gone ahead and found the perfect Clinique shade for each drink to help make your future as an amateur mixologist a little easier. Think of it as our little gift to you. Now, go bring cheer (and colorful smiles) to your besties. Cheers!
