It's a common fantasy trope for the potions you drink to have attributes in themselves that are similar to the ones that they bestow upon you. Invisibility potions are smoky, potions dealing with heat are themselves hot to the touch, charming potions are pink and sweet, etc. In light of that I don't think it's at all out of line for a potion of resist cold to be cold to the touch and otherwise "cold-aligned", which in Angband's case means that it resists cold damage.
