It’s the first freeze of the season across the United States—and what better way to handle the chilly weather than with a hot drink in your hand! This week, the Krrb team is pulling out all the stops on toasty beverages. Read on to see what we’re drinking and get the recipes.
Hot Buttered Rum
Amy Johnson of She Wears Many Hats has perfected the Hot Buttered Rum. The key is to spring for a higher quality dark rum which brings a strong, deep flavor to the drink. Also, try using salted butter because it amplifies the sweetness of the cider. Cheers!
Creamy Vegan Hot Chocolate
Indulging in the occasional (or everyday!) cup of hot chocolate is easier on the waistline with this healthy treat. Barb of Wishful Chef uses a combination of coconut and almond milk for a silky taste.
Spicy Hot Toddy
Nursing a cold is a heck of a lot better when you’re nursing a hot toddy as well. We can’t get enough of this recipe by Bev Cooks on Tablespoon that includes enough Sriracha to clear the sinuses.
This cranberry cider recipe has the perfect balance of sugary sweet and tartness. Complete with cinnamon and cloves, you’ll be sipping mug after mug of this delightful beverage.
Pumpkin Chai Latte
Whether you’re a fan or superfan of the pumpkin spice flavor, this pumpkin chai latte is one you’ll be craving all winter long. Easy to make at home, this recipe by Kate of Cookie, uses real pumpkin puree (can is fine!) and ginger—yum!
