It’s been a long, hard day and your commute home from work has finished you off. Your hair resembles a dishevelled mop, makeup is running down your cheeks and your clothes are stuck to you like a swim suit. Not a great look.
The recovery is always easier when you’ve got yourself a delicious, hot drink to warm you up so we’ve looked through lots of different winter warmer recipes and shortlisted our favourites.
If you love sweet liqueurs, rich chocolate and seasonal spices, this is the blog post for you!
Amaretto Hot Chocolate
With delicious almond undertones, this hot chocolate recipe is Christmas in a cup. Heat up a cup of hot cocoa or use your favourite hot chocolate mix then add a shot of amaretto before whisking the milk until it has a generous amount of froth on top. Pour in to glass latte mugs (if you’re feeling fancy) and add a pinch of grated chocolate on top.
Give your cuppa a festive kick with the help of some tasty spices. Simply add 8 cardamom seeds, 8 cloves, 4 black peppercorns, 2 cinnamon sticks and a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger to 2 cups of frothy whole milk mixed with 4 bags of black tea and you’ve got the perfect winter warmer.
If you’re short on time, you can always use a pre-made ‘Drink Me Chai’ mix with warm frothy milk! Sprinkle the latte with a mix of sugar and cinnamon if you want to give it an extra special finishing touch.
Mulled Cherry Good
Mulled wine is a big favourite at Christmas time but what if you’re tee total?
Grab a carton of Cherry Good and warm up the juice in a large saucepan until warm, add 2 anise stars, cinnamon and cloves to taste. Before serving pop a few slices of lemon and orange into the saucepan and hey presto – you’ve got yourself some mulled Cherry Good!
