A Winter Whiskey Cocktail, served in a classic whiskey glass. The cocktail has a deep amber color, warmed by the rich flavors typical of a winter drink. It's garnished with a cinnamon stick and a slice of dried orange, adding a seasonal touch. The setting is cozy, perhaps a cabin with a fireplace in the background, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere. The glass rests on a wooden table, with a soft, knitted scarf partially draped over the table's edge, adding to the winter theme.
