Warming Up Drinks

At the end of a cold winters day there is nothing nicer than curling up with a nice warming drink. Here are a few of my favourites. 

Nutella Hot Chocolate.
Now this one is so simple, almost as simple as making your chocolate from a sachet, but it's a good one to star with especially if you like a nutty flavour, or are simply a Nutella addict.

Take a saucepan and put a mug of milk on to heat.
When it's warm add two heaped teaspoons of Nutella, or you can add more if you wish.
Stir until almost boiling, pour back into your mug and enjoy.

Baileys Hot Chocolate.

If you fancy something with a bit of an alcoholic boost then this one is definitely a firm favourite.

Put 300ml of milk into a saucepan and add 1 tsp of hot chocolate powder.
Warm through stirring all the time, keep on medium heat until hot but not boiling.
Pour 50ml of Baileys into a mug or heatproof glass.
Add the hot milk and stir.
Top with chocolate flakes or whipped cream.

Hot Vanilla Milk

This is perfect as a bedtime drink. 

Warm a cup of milk in a pan on the stove.
Add 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
Add sugar to taste

Sleep tight.

Winter Lemonade

Have a nasty cold, or just need warming up, you will love this.

Slice a fresh lemon and put them in a pan with a cupful of water.
Bring to the boil and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Pour carefully into a cup leaving the lemon slices behind.
Add a spoonful of honey.
If you like it sprinkle with cinnamon or ginger.
Leave the lemons in the pan as they will be good for another cup later.
