I love winter for many things, one of which is all the delicious hot drinks I can’t even stand to think about during the interminable summer we suffer here in the South. Two of my go-to hot drinks are spiced apple cider and hot chocolate. Here are two delicious recipes:
1.) Super easy spiced apple cider – This recipe is so easy and delicious. Put a gallon of apple cider in a large saucepan or if you have time, in a crock pot, add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like it), 2-4 sticks of cinnamon, freshly grated nutmeg, 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of cloves, a few allspice, and two medium oranges, sliced in 1/2 inch slices. Slowly bring to a near boil and enjoy. Let cool completely and refrigerate leftovers.
2.) Hot chocolate. I’m still searching for my favorite hot chocolate recipe but I found The Best Ever Hot Chocolate Mix on Pinterest (there are TONS of hot chocolate recipes there) from My Heavenly Recipes that looks delicious, has only 5 ingredients, and adds in the essential spice of cinnamon and salt.
Are you going to give one of these recipes a try? What would you suggest I try next?
