The weather outside is frightful, but those oh-so-cozy drinks in your Springfield apartment are so inviting! Guests who stop in for a visit on a blustery winter day will assuredly want to hang out a little longer if you've got something warm and inviting to sip. Check out these three holiday-themed drinks that will bust the chill of any winter day.
French Hot Chocolate
Rich, chocolatey and velvety smooth, French hot chocolate is one of those winter drinks that is a lot more like a dessert in a cup. Made using only two ingredients (70-percent dark chocolate and whole milk) this delicious drink can be made in a pinch when unexpected visitors come to your apartment to shake off the cold. This drink is perfect when it's topped off with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and some chocolate curls or brown sugar for added sweetness.
Hot Caramel Apple Cider
Many people think of hot apple cider as a fall or harvest drink, but it is just as soothing long after Thanksgiving has passed, and it's so easy to make. Hot caramel apple cider is a dressed-up version of the cold-weather favorite; it is topped with whipped topping and drizzled with scrumptiously tempting caramel for an added wow factor. You don't have to buy anything fancy to make this caramel-topped treat, and apple cider will last a while in the fridge.
Dutch Fresh Mint Tea
What better way to fight the chill in your throat, nose, and lungs than with some warm mint — and that's just what you get with Dutch fresh mint tea. If you're a fan of green teas, this winter-season beverage could easily become a new favorite. Mint tea sounds complicated, but really it is super simple. All you need are some fresh mint leaves, steamy water, and a little organic honey for sweetness. Steep the leaves for a few minutes in your hot water, pour, add honey to taste and you've got yourself a refreshing, slightly sweet beverage that melts any trace of the winter blues.
