Winter grilling, depending on where you live, can mean extremely different things. For those lucky enough to roast in board shorts and a T-shirt, well, good for you. The rest of us must bundle up and brush snow off our grills (put a drink in your hand first, that should help). Whatever your weather, you’ll want to fire up your grill; here’s a recipe that’ll make even the coldest, shortest of winter nights seem a little less bleak. It involves two of the greatest dining pleasures on earth: red meat and liquor.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 12 to 14 minutes

2 (6 oz) filets mignons
Salt and pepper
3 tbsp of salted butter – room temperature
1 tbsp of Scotch – we used The Singleton of Glendullan
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp of finely chopped parsley
