Glühwein is a staple during this time, and it is served in DC. A definite chill is in the air in D.C., prompting Stable owner and beverage director Silvan Kraemer to get to work crafting hot cocktails to warm up the H Street NE Swiss standby’s drink list.

The warm drinks stay true to the “all things Swiss” mantra at Stable, utilizing spirits from Switzerland or harkening back to classic winter cocktails enjoyed in Kraemer’s native country.
