Hot or not, what is everyone's favorite (alcoholic) winter beverage?

In the beer category, I have to go with Sam Adam's Winter Lager. I know it's probably cliché, but I just haven't came across a better winter brew yet. Feel free to leave any suggestions you may have in the comments.

In the non-beer category, I have to go with my own special rum/cider punch. Cut up some green apples and throw them in the cider along with a cinnamon stick. Heat that up until the apples are soft. Once the apples are soft and the mixture is hot, add rum to your desired strength. Be sure to turn the heat down after you add the rum so you don't lose the alcohol. Enjoy.
