Getting cosy with a hot drink is obviously one of the best parts about Autumn and Winter.
I’m talking hot chocolates, chai lattes, sweet fruit teas and mulled wine. Who else is planning to take their daily calorie allowance and just spend it on steamy, creamy beverages? It’s low in nutritional value, but high in snug-factor.
Here are a variety of delicious warming drinks I plan on making over the next couple of months:
Italian Hot Chocolate:
I’ve just ruined your day haven’t I? Now you have to sit there thinking about this heavenly treat for hours before you can have it. I don’t know for sure, but this may be the drink of the Gods.
Nothing in the world says Christmas better than a hot glass of mulled wine. It’s the perfect, delicious excuse to consume way more than your daily alcohol limit while watching hideously cheesy children’s’ Christmas movies.
White Peppermint Hot Chocolate:
Ooft, just look at it. It’s like something from a Disney film. As a big white-choc fan, I am overwhelmingly excited to try this recipe – and it’s really simple too!
Chai Tea Latte:
Ahh the classic Chai Latte. I’ve never tried to make this myself (I’m lazy and buy the packet stuff/buy it from my local coffee shop oops), but it seems very satisfying! I don’t understand the tea aspect of it, but hey.
Hot milk with gingerbread syrup:
Okay, I made this one up. Because of how my body reacts to excessive caffeine and chocolate consumption, this is my go-to hot drink for Winter. It’s also a nice cheap Starbucks order ;)
PS. Looking through all the hot drinks recipes on the internet, I tried really hard to find a good tea recipe, but I couldn’t find one because they all looked crap.
PPS. I hate tea.
