You know what’s the hard part about winter? Having to decide on a meal that will not just keep you warm but also happy. If you settle for something bland, winter blues will get to you. So this winter, and in winters to come, indulge in plenty of rich spicy food and robust whiskies. To begin with, you can try:

Garden Lasagna

Just because it is winter and you want to gorge on a lot of meat to warm yourself up, is no excuse to give up on veggies. In fact, all the more reason to have veggies is the Garden Lasagna, which will not only satisfy your stomach, but also your soul. But let’s admit it, in the end we will want to get a peg of Ballantine’s to wash down the lasagna. And why not, when the scotch can complement all that cheese!

Sour Cream, Cheddar, and Green Onion Drop Biscuits

Think about those bleak evenings when all you want to do is sit cozy and binge watch a television series. Right when you are on the second or third episode, the hunger creeps in and so does the cold, and you are left clueless. But it need not be that way anymore. Just get yourself some Sour Cream, Cheddar, and Green Onion Drop Biscuits and pour yourself some Scapa. You are pretty much sorted, so just wait for the peaty smoky scotch to flatter your palate while you are popping in those biscuits.

Chipotle Meatloaf

Take our word for it. Instead of using ground beef, bake your meatloaf with turkey. Pair it with corn, potato, and a few drams of 100 Pipers. The reason why this is an awesome winter meal is the spice that goes into making it. Chipotles, cumin, oregano, pepper, and hot sauce among other things. But it is honestly the 100 Pipers that will balance all that spice, and make your Chipotle meatloaf taste way better.

Beef Stroganoff

You know it’s really hard to say no to Beef Stroganoff. While the calorie count might occasionally bother you, you know a rich beef dish should ideally be accompanied by a good whisky. Perfect for a winter supper, this scrumptious Stroganoff would pair well with Jameson Irish Whisky. Not only does the whisky accentuate the creaminess of the platter, it also heats up your system for a good while.

Pork Roast with Fennel and Apples

There’s no meat in the entire world as good as pork. Easy to make, easily available, roasted pork with fennel and apple chunks should be your go-to meal this winter. Just remember to pair your pork loins with the Canadian delight, J.P. Wiser’s, for the ultimate satisfying and filling meal.
