For many, winter means cold nights, comfortable sweaters, and warm Christmas drinks in front of the fireplace. No matter if you are in the mood for a peppermint drink that evokes thoughts of candy canes or you are craving gingerbread cookies in a cup, we have you covered.
In this piece, we will cover everything from classic holiday drinks to modern-day favorites. If you are looking for something warm and wonderful to sip on this winter in your Ember Mug², then cozy up with these five holiday drink recipes.
This recipe for hot buttered rum is one of those warm Christmas drinks that we think should make it into everyone’s annual rotation. It’s truly a rich and creamy delight.
Hot buttered rum is another classic holiday drink, as its history dates back to the colonial era of the United States. However, while the country has changed a lot in that time, the flavor profile of this holiday beverage hasn’t; it is just as sweet, buttery, creamy, and packed with holiday spice as it was during the country’s founding.
While not one of the classic holiday drinks,this Rumchata eggnog recipe is just too delicious to not list among these fun Christmas drinks.
Rumchata eggnog has all the flavors you would expect from holiday drink recipes, such as cinnamon, eggnog (of course), and vanilla, all blended together into a sweet and creamy treat that is sure to warm both your body and spirit. Moreover, if you are not the biggest fan of eggnog, you can swap that ingredient out for hot chocolate or coffee, and still get all that rumchata goodness.
When it comes to warm Christmas drinks, a warm peppermint mocha recipe is just about as festive (and tasty) as you can get.
Peppermint mocha is a fun Christmas drink that you can enjoy all on your own or share with the whole family, as this one doesn’t have any alcohol. While this treat might be free of alcohol, you still get that warming satisfaction from this minty, creamy coffee or espresso-based beverage.
A perfect blend of ginger, nutmeg, sugar, and coffee, this gingerbread latte recipe is one of our go-to holiday drinks.
Another coffee-based concoction (or espresso, if you’d like), a gingerbread latte is another spirited drink that can be shared with loved ones of all ages. If you prefer the nice, mellow blend of spices and the rich molasses notes that come from gingerbread cookies, this is the drink for you this holiday season.
