The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop celebrating. One way to beat the winter blahs and stay warm this winter is by getting together with your pals at your favorite watering hole. 

The Mill Kitchen and Bar in Roswell is a local favorite and has an extensive selection of wine and cocktails, plus a few suggestions to help keep you toasty this winter. Whether you’re dining with the family or just popping in after work with friends, you’ll find something satisfying to eat and drink and a friendly welcome.

Owners Ol’ Fashioned

This classic cocktail is made with McCray's Barrel Select Bourbon, Angostura orange bitters, simple syrup, and finished with a flamed orange. Truly great bourbon can only be distilled in America, with most manufacturing done in Kentucky. Bourbon is primarily corn-based and aged a minimum of two years, which provides a smooth and sippable experience when enjoying this classic cocktail.

Apple Cide-Car

Although you might consider apple cider more of a fall specialty, the Apple Cide-Car will undoubtedly change your mind. In addition to the apple cider, produced locally in Georgia, Copper and King Apple Jack Brandy, Cointreau, fresh pressed lemon, and a dusting of cinnamon round out this cocktail, making it perfect for enjoying on a cold winter’s night.


Taking the first sip of this cocktail will seem to transport you back to your summer activities, with hints of chocolate, graham crackers, and toasted marshmallows. However, if glamping isn’t your thing, meaning you prefer your winter cocktails inside around the fireplace, and not outside, ask your bartender to make you a Glamping. 

Teremana, Turbinado, chocolate bitters, and a graham cracker rim with toasted marshmallows in a smoked glass will keep you warm this winter, and you won’t have to fight off those pesky visitors that seem to be at every outdoor activity during the summer months.

Smoked Old Fashioned

Another great way to beat the chill on a cold Roswell evening is by trying something different. The Smoked Old Fashioned, while similar in name to an Owner’s Ol’ Fashioned, stands out as a spirit to keep the good times rolling. Made with High West Double Rye Whiskey, Angostura orange bitters, simple syrup, and capped with a flamed orange and Amarena Cherry, this cocktail has everything and more to satisfy even the pickiest of your friends.
