Can fire whiskey and Klingon bloodwine keep you warm?
Can these two classic cocktails keep you warm this winter?
With this weather, you might be stuck indoors and looking for something fun and different. For all Harry Potter and Star Trek fans, here are two recipes that will warm your heart and soul. So can fire whiskey and Klingon bloodwine keep you warm?
Honestly, drinking alcohol to warm up is an old myth. The truth is, if you're going to be out in the cold for a long time and aren't paying attention, a few sips of alcohol aren't advisable. The feeling of warmth is an illusion. Alcohol alone does not warm you. This causes your blood vessels to dilate, sending more blood than normal to the skin, giving you the feeling of warmth when in reality you are losing heat much more quickly. So if you're going to treat yourself, don't do it in freezing temperatures.

Fire whiskey is an alcoholic drink consumed by wizards and witches in the Harry Potter universe. Although minors were not allowed to purchase it, it was occasionally consumed. It was known to cause a burning sensation when drunk and fill the body with courage. According to tradition, it was modeled after Fireball liquor.
Blood wine is a popular alcoholic beverage among Klingons that is best served warm. Like many Klingon foods and drinks, it was not for the faint of heart. Bloodwine is known to be highly intoxicating, making it a real hit for non-Klingons. Klingon captains and generals liked to carry several barrels of their favorite wines to celebrate victories. Bloodwine is traditionally consumed by warriors inducted into the Bat'leth Order. Bloodwine was used in a symbolic gesture following the invasion of Cardassia in 2375.
