Chilly Nights; Warm Drinks
In fall and winter, there is a lot of talk about “comfort food”. Tasty pasta dishes, hearty casseroles and savory soups. But what about when your belly is full, and you just want something to warm you up on a cool evening.
Maybe you’re about to binge watch your favorite show, or curl up by the fireplace with a good book. There’s nothing like a warm mug to wrap your hands around on these kind of nights.
Sure, for a quick fix, you can heat a kettle for a teabag, or mix a packet of pre-made hot chocolate into a microwaved cup of water. But if you have a little extra time, and really want to treat yourself, check out some of these decadent delights!
Want something warm, but need to satisfy that sweet tooth at the same time? Try this Ultimate Gourmet Hot Chocolate from Fleece Fun. ( Add some creme de menthe or amaretto to give it a little kick!)
Soothe away the day’s stress with this Chamomile-Honey Hot Toddy from Simply Recipes. Want the alcohol free version? Just make without the whiskey!
Hot Mulled Cider is a classic fall drink and there are numerous ways to make it, but one of my favorites is this recipe from the Food Network. Turn it into a cocktail with a shot of Fireball!
Prefer a glass of wine in the evening, but still searching for something comforting? Lemons for Lulu offers this delectable Warm Red Sangria recipe that will hit the spot.
