Kid-friendly and adult-pleasing drinks on the winter beverage menu feature sweet seasonal ingredients like caramel, cider, cocoa, peppermint and whipped cream. Even if you’re too full for dessert, there’s almost always room for an after-meal drink whether or not it contains alcohol.

Adult-Friendly Cocktails

  • Turtle Hot Chocolate is a favorite cold weather drink at Glenwood Caverns Adventure ParkRumChata Chai Tea. Creamy chai pairs with RumChata to make one of our most popular beverages. The spicey-sweet rum liquor is inspired by horchata, a traditional Mexican drink and makes this hot cocktail as smooth as can be.

  • Turtle Hot Chocolate. Dessert in a mug! This delish drink features butterscotch schnapps and hot cocoa topped with a mound of whipped cream, chocolate and caramel syrup, and is served with a flurry of chopped pecans.
  • Decadent Sangria. A staple of Portugal and Spain, sangria takes on winter with the use of mulled wine that highlights the flavors of orange, berries and cloves. Decadent indeed!
  • Hot Buttered Rum. Sweet and warm, this classic winter drink is perfect for cold days at the Adventure Park. A secret family recipe is at the heart of this mix of spiced rum, butter, powdered and brown sugar, and ice cream. The final flourish is a dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Hot Candy Cane. Christmas décor may be stored away, but we’re keeping our candy canes close by for this peppy drink. Peppermint schnapps and hot chocolate are a match made in beverage heaven especially when topped with a cloud of whipped cream and a garnish of crushed peppermint candies.
  • Irish Coffee. Java and whiskey are another classic combo ideal for a late afternoon pick-me-up. Enjoy Gaelic flair with this drink that features a trio of Emerald Isle ingredients including Jameson’s Irish Whisky, Irish cream and coffee crowned with whipped cream and sugar.
