Cozy and Warm Drinks We Love For The Holidays

It’s December, and darlings, it’s cold out there. When you can’t risk a higher heating bill, and a favorite sweater just won’t do the trick, resorting to drinking is the way to go. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic alike, here are LD’s favorite cozy warm winter drinks for December.


 

 

Coffee, plain and simple. Especially when you get up early to see what’s under that tree, this classic beverage is sure to make even the naughtiest morning person a nice one.

 

Scotch.

 

Mulled wine!

 

Hot cocoa, of course. Extra dark. Spike with a shot of marshmallow vodka for bonus points.

 

Classic Chai. Homemade or from a bag, add a generous dollop of honey, some milk or cream, and stir with a cinnamon stick.

 

Maple Bourbon Chai Tea Toddy. The spice of chai with the sweetness of maple. Oh, and with a little something, extra of course (ie, bourbon). 

Irish Hazelnut Cream. Nuff said.

Red Hot Apple Cider. Throw a few Red Hots into your sizzling cider for a bit of extra spice.

 

Peppermint Hot Chocolate or a Peppermint Mocha: Because nothing makes chocolate or coffee better than a little peppermint. Add peppermint schnapps to your favorite hot chocolate for an “adult” version. Don’t forget the whipped cream and cinnamon on top!


 What is keeping you warm this winter? Let us know @litdarling!

Julia has spent the majority of her life in beautiful Virginia, although her slight accent suggests she spent more than her first four years in New York. She's a student at a public University where she supplements the in-state break in tuition with far too many trips to downtown restaurants and bookstores. A recovering "Friends" addict, Julia prefers intimate nights with Ben and Jerry over mundane collegiate activities like studying or barhopping. She's got a sweet tooth for writing and when she's not scribbling on every scrap of paper available, you'll find her questioning her own wardrobe or building a tolerance for classical music. At the moment, she's writing her first autobiography and mustering up the courage to go skydiving. Seriously.
