CHICAGO (CBS) — New Year’s Eve is coming up on Tuesday night. Are you planning fun party with fun cocktails?

We had some help on that front Saturday morning from Vinny Starble, the bartender at Bad Hunter, 802 W. Randolph St.

He suggested some cocktails that would be great for winter. Here are the recipes for a couple of them:
