Warming up at Steel & Rye

When the temps drop into the single digits and the snow piles high, our minds turn to comfort food and  libations to warm the soul. In the most recent Boston Globe Dining Out section, writer Katie Johnston dished on one of the DottieHotties favorite new spots to warm up this winter: Chef Chris Parsons new restaurant and bar, Steel & Rye in Lower Mills. On a cold night in February we cozied up to their candlelit bar while  mixologist Emily Conroy served up some of their signature cocktails. She was kind enough to share with the recipes for our three favorites … some of the ingredients are definitely hard to find so we’ll probably just head back to Steel & Rye and leave it to the experts!
