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.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
