Take Off the Chill with a Hot Drink
Hot drinks can take the chill off the coldest day. How about some Mexican hot chocolate? It's easy, just prepare a mug of hot chocolate as you normally would, and add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and a pinch of chili powder. Stir.
If chocolate isn't your thing (is that even possible?) why not try a vanilla steamer? Heat up a mug of milk and add a teaspoon of vanilla and perhaps a sprinkle of ground nutmeg. Sweeten to taste. For a white hot chocolate, add some shavings of white chocolate to the vanilla steamer recipe and stir until melted.
Other possibilities to consider are hot apple cider, chai tea or any other hot beverage that you fancy.
Won't you join me in a hot drink? We're past the half-way mark in February and that's definitely something to raise a mug too!
