Cozy Drink Ideas in November

These Menomonee Falls, WI mornings can get chilly! If you’re tired of the same black coffee or tea routine in the morning, we’ve got a few drinks that will perk you right up!

First, take your drink on the go with a great tumbler or mug. Try these Roasty Coffee ones or this insulated travel mug from Amazon.

Now that you’ve found the perfect cup to carry your drink in, let’s focus on what’s inside! If you’re a tea fan, we think chai is the perfect marriage of sweet and spicy. This chai recipe is delicious served hot, and it can be mixed with your choice of milk for a latte style drink. Chai is also delicious poured over ice.

If you’re a fan of the classic latte, here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to create one at home without an espresso machine! The site says, “We love to sit inside on a chilly day with a hot, frothy latte or cappuccino. But a latte shouldn't just be a coffee shop treat. Even without an espresso machine, a milk frother, or other toys of the trade, you can make a pretty decent latte at home — and yes, it will have a beautiful cap of foam.”

For the cocoa fans, this crockpot hot cocoa recipe is probably our favorite! It makes a large batch, which means there’s no shortage of hot cocoa, even if you share. It’s perfect to serve at your next movie night with friends, or you can make a batch in the morning and you’ll have something sweet to sip all day long. As for cocoa, we love to play around with different flavorings, like cinnamon and nutmeg, white chocolate and peppermint, or a little orange zest and cloves!
