Masala Chai Tea
Masala chai tea is one of the most iconic winter drinks out there. It is flavorful and full of spices that you can adjust at your leisure.

Mexican Spiced Hot Cocoa

Mexican cuisine excels at combining the sweetness of chocolate with the power of spice. A hint of ground chipotle, a dash of cinnamon, and some hot chocolate, and you will be in winter heaven.
Easy Blender Eggnog
Eggnog is a true winter favorite. Most times, it is only available in winter time, as it is considered to be more of a festive holiday drink. Christmas and eggnog have always been partners in crime. You can drink eggnog by itself served plain, or you can spice it up a little bit by adding a little splash of rum or a splash of whiskey.
Mulled Wine with Cranberries
Mulled wine is a wonderful drink that not only keeps you warm in the winter, but also acts like a type of tonic. This recipe takes traditional mulled wine and spices it up a little bit by adding cranberry juice and fresh cranberries.
