5 Winter Warmer Drinks

Graham Hadaway - Tuesday, October 13, 2015

 

We all know that on a dark, wintry day nothing beats a hot drink. Whether you’ve been wandering round doing a bit of early Christmas shopping, or you want to warm yourself up after a brisk walk to blow away the cobwebs, it’s great coming back and curling up in a comfy armchair with the perfect winter drink. Likewise, if you’re off out with friends, the closer it gets to Christmas the more these drinks could be a great alternative, whether it involves alcohol or not! Here at The Cranleigh we’ve put together our favourite recipes for you to enjoy!

 

Winter Pimm’s

Pimm’s is the ultimate British summer drink but there is no reason why you can’t make a few changes and enjoy it while you’re wrapped up in your scarf and gloves! This is a great way to reminisce over the slightly warmer days of summer while gearing yourself up for the wintry spells ahead. Simply mix Pimm’s, brandy, apple juice, cinnamon sticks, sliced apple and sliced orange and heat it up for a brilliant Winter Pimm’s recipe.

 

Cinnamon Cranberry Punch

This refreshing hot drink with a winter twist is a great way to welcome guests as the weather turns colder! Heat up a mixture of pineapple juice, sparkling cranberry juice and sugar and serve with fresh cranberries and cinnamon sticks for a winter punch drink that will look impressive and taste incredible.

 

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Everyone has gone crazy for the return of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spiced Latte this winter, but why not have a little bit more fun and make it yourself? All you need is milk, sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract and you could have a winter warmer drink in no time – it might even rival Starbucks’ own! Go all out and pair it with a treat or two.

 

Caramel Apple Hot Toddy

If you can get your hands on some caramel vodka, this is a great winter cocktail! Simply mix the flavoured vodka with apple cider, bourbon and cinnamon sticks in a pan to heat and then serve, adding whipped cream to the top if you wish! This caramel-based recipe would certainly warm you up after a day out and about.

 

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

A hot chocolate is everyone’s favourite in the winter but this recipe puts a great twist on it for something a little different. From the queen of indulgence, Nigella Lawson has the best recipe for this special hot chocolate, using milk, dark chocolate and her own-recipe salted caramel sauce.

 

Why not match your luxury winter drink with a relaxing weekend break in the beautiful Lake District this winter and hibernate from your usual routine?
