Whether you’re attending a holiday party or staying in for a movie night, a cozy drink in hand can make all the difference. 

If you’re in need of some warming up this winter, we’ve put together this list of warm, delicious cozy drinks that can bring the holiday spirit into your mug this holiday season. Here are 4 of the best seasonal favorites we’ve come across, from our house to yours:

Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is made by combining a bottle of red with some orange slices, warm spices, honey, and brandy, and letting it simmer for 10 minutes. It’s the perfect drink to serve at your next holiday get-together. 

Homemade Hot Chocolate 

While you can buy instant cocoa powder that gets the job done, nothing beats homemade hot chocolate. Combine sugar, cocoa powder, a pinch of salt, boiling water, a splash of vanilla, and half-and-half to make the perfect drink to enjoy with the kids before cozying up next to the fire for a Christmas movie!

Eggnog Chai Latte

Tired of coffee? Want to start your morning with a seasonal kick? The Eggnog Chai Latte combines chai tea, eggnog, and milk for a high-octane, spicy, and creamy concoction—perfect for any morning that needs warming up with a caffeinated kick.

Dutch Fresh Mint Hot Tea

For those of us needing a quick warm-up without the calories or caffeine, Dutch Mint Tea is unbeatable and easy to make. Combine fresh mint leaves with boiling water, and you’ve got yourself a tasty, low-calorie drink that’s perfect for whenever you need it this winter.  

Holiday Get-Togethers Made Better

Holiday parties are a great time to share food, drinks, and presents with your friends and family. Watching Christmas movies and continuing family traditions brings about the kinds of moments that would inspire Norman Rockwell to grab his brush and start painting. These drinks will add some variety to your get-togethers and broaden your holiday taste buds.

The busyness of the holidays can often catch up to us, and at the end of every day filled with holiday shopping, parties, happy hours, and travel, it’s important that you come home to a place you love in a community you enjoy. 

If you’re looking for a new home to start fresh in the coming year, take a look at what The Colony in Bastrop has to offer. Life in The Colony gets you access to the best schools, amenities, open spaces, nearby nature, and a house you’ll love coming home to.
