11 Cozy Drinks To Warm You This Winter

Daylight savings time has arrived and settled in, if you are in a part of the world where this applies. The sun is peeking out for a shorter and shorter amount of time during the day. Jack Frost is lurking behind every corner, and there might even be snow on the ground where you live. What does all of this mean? It means that it’s time to turn up the heat—both in your home and in your kitchen—by cooking up some of these cozy drinks that are sure to warm you this winter. Check out these hot drink recipes you can make in the comfort of your own home.

1. Boozy Skinny Hot Chocolate

    Have you ever tasted amaretto? It’s one of those alcohols that’s dangerous in the sense that it is so delicious and smooth that you will not be able to stop drinking it. Combining it with cocoa is just plain genius.

     

    2. Mexican Hot Chocolate with Dulce de Leche Cream

      When I think of fall or winter drinks, I often think of spices. Pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon are common fall favorites. This decadent recipe is made dulce de leche by adding vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!

      3. Mocha Cocoa Mix

        Be prepared for the cold winter months by making your very own mocha mix! A mocha is simply chocolate and espresso rolled into one delicious concoction. You can make a batch of this right now and store it for up to six months.

        4. White Spiced Coffee

          For this recipe, you have to be serious about having a good cup of spiced rum coffee. I mean you have to crack things and strain them and cook them. In my experience, however, some of the best treats I have made in the kitchen took a good deal of time and patience. Besides, what else do you have to do when you are cooped up trying to escape the frigid weather outside?

          5. Eggnog Latte

            Eggnog is a classic winter drink, but have you ever had an eggnog latte? This is a super simple recipe as long as you have an espresso maker with a steam wand. And if you do not own one of these machines, perhaps you might ask for one for Christmas?

            6. Frothy Eggnog

              Did you know you can make your own eggnog? Of course you did. So did I…err…sure I did! Apparently it is not only the beverage that mysteriously appears in a carton. You can, in fact, brew up your own at home. I guarantee that if you have a party with homemade eggnog, your guests will be impressed. Go an extra step and make it into an eggnog latte (as seen above) and your friends are sure to remember this gathering!

              7. Christmas Rum Punch

                My favorite part about this recipe is that you set fire to the rum (but please follow the rest of the directions and do not drink it while it is on fire). If that does not warm you up, I have no idea what will!

                8. Easy Chai Tea

                  I know I love the warm spice of chai tea, especially in the winter. You can make your own from scratch with this recipe.

                  9. Moroccan Mint Tea

                    This hot tea is packed with nutrients from the green tea as well as the fresh mint, and it is pretty simple to make.

                    10. White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha

                      This is one of my favorite drinks to get at a coffee shop around the holidays. Peppermint always reminds me of candy canes on Christmas trees, so a hot cup of the stuff fills me with cheer. This is an easy way to save a few bucks by making your own at home. I cannot wait to try this recipe myself!

                      11. Hot Toddy

                        I like that this website gives an outline on how to make a hot toddy. Most people have their own personal preferences when it comes to alcohol and teas, so why not let them pick their own? I think I would go with a green tea, honey and a nice, smooth and spiced rum.

                        What do you think? Which one will you try first?

                        If you make your own coffee in the morning, chances are you’re only making the same boring kind everyday. Now it’s time to put an end to the cynical habit and turn you into an instant coffee connoisseur.

                        For those who don’t know, there are officially 38 different ways to make coffee. All, except decaffeinated versions will give you the same buzz that can either make you extremely productive or give you anxiety.

                        The only difference here is taste. And when it comes to coffee, taste matters. A lot.

                        Most of the methods and ingredients from the chart above dates back hundreds of years and have been traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Hence, it’s actually possible to tell where a person came from based on the type of coffee he or she drinks!
