The 6 Best Ways to Beat the Cold in Nashville

So, I'm most definitely not a cold-weather person - and thanks to Mother Nature, I've had quite the (sudden) amount of adjusting to do here in Nashville. That said, I think it's best to focus on the positive and enjoy a few of the elements that come along with the season: Fires, Christmas Lights, the Holidays, Blankets, Peppermint everything.

Along with these yearly staples come a few of my most favorite ways to beat the cold in town. So if you can muster enough bravery to venture out into the elements, be sure not to miss the following:

Sweet Potato & Torched Marshmallow Ice Cream at Jenis

Freezing cold outside and Ice Cream? Only when it's Jenis. I count down the days for this seasonal flavor to reappear on the menu - and it's here! You need to partake. Now.

Hot Chocolate Service at Josephine

A new item on Josephine's brunch menu and one not to be missed. Rich, hot, dark chocolate served with house marshmallows, peppermint bark, whipped cream, and graham cookies. Truly divine.

Cozying up by the fire at Sportsman's Lodge
There's nothing like warming up next to a real fire lit in a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and grabbing a beer in this log cabin-esque restaurant. While you're there, do yourself a favor and get the fried pickles.

Adele's Milk Punch
This drink changed my life - and is probably my new favorite cool-weather bevy. Gosling’s Black Rum, Wray & Nephew Overproof Rum, Cognac, Citrus, and Spices round up the ingredients for this fabulous cocktail, which is truly the perfect balance of sweet and spice and a must to be experienced by all.

Turtle Anarchy Portly Stout
A solid, straight-up stout is my go-to when it's cold out, and this local brew is one to never disappoint. Turtle Anarchy's delicious Portly Stout is brewed with three different dark malts has a delightfully creamy, smooth feel.

Lights at Opryland

You haven't experienced winter in Nashville until you've been to Opryland to check out their gorgeous holiday decor and display of over two million lights. Yes, two million - it is quite the sight to behold.
