They may be made with ice, but Frozen Concoction Makers® aren't just for cooling off. When crafted with spices and a little heat, they can warm you up even during the chilliest of winters! Grab a blanket, cozy up by the fire and settle in with these four concoctions that are perfect for staying warm on snowy days:

1. Fiery Pineapple Margaritas
