Warm Drinks for Chilly Days

Good morning! Happy Friday! 

I hope you have some relaxing plans for the weekend. Perhaps sitting down next to a roaring fire, with a book and a nice warm winter beverage.

Raspberry Hot Chocolate

In my world hot chocolate is like coffee, but not so for many, it is a beverage that is saved for chilly winter months, much like eggnog or mulled cider. 

Basil Mint Hot Chocolate

At this time of the year, the blogs, and magazines are filled with great ideas for warm drinks on chilly days. 

Gingerbread Hot Chocolate

Or any day for that matter.

Hot Spiced Cider

Aside from coffee, do you have a special drink that you whip up on the holidays? 

Dark Chocolate Latte

I would love to hear about it. If you would like to try some cocktails head over to a fabulous new blog that I found You May Be Wandering, Sandy has a feature each Thursday on cocktails. Last week she featured some delicious looking holiday cocktails from hotels around the country. 

If you would like to try some warm drinks the links are listed below.

Enjoy your day!

  3. Hello Elizabeth

    All those drinks look delicious. Here in Florida, it is going to be close to 80 degrees today and Iced Tea and Lemonade are the drinks du jour.

    Have a wonderful weekend

  4. Hello dear friend!!
    How are you? Busy, getting ready for the festivities, I'm sure...
    But not too busy to savor these luscious hot chocolates,I hope!
    We are finally getting snow this weekend, so it may be a Minnesota December after all!
    Wishing you love, dearest Elizabeth...
