24 Hygge-Perfect Hot Drink Recipes to Get You Through Winter

You’ve already added a Hygge element to your home, your dinner and your closet, but what about your drinks? Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), the trendy Danish lifestyle and decor craze that’s all about coziness, is a natural fit for hot cocoa, tea and more warm beverages. But don’t take our word for it — try these 24 recipes yourself, and see just how easy it is to appreciate all that winter has to offer.

1. Ginger Beet Root Latte: Pink drinks always make us smile, but this one’s extra special. It’s colored naturally, with beet powder, then flavored with ginger for an herbal beverage that will soothe your soul. (via Unrefined RD)

2. Himalayan Salt Butter Tea: Think of this drink as tea’s answer to bulletproof coffee. Pu-erh tea is enriched with butter, salt, sugar and milk for a creamy drink that will brace you against the cold of winter. (via Thirsty for Tea)

3. Slow Cooker Gingerbread Latte: Stay cozy inside while this gingerbread latte simmers away in the slow cooker, then spend the day giving yourself as many refills as your heart desires. (via Sincerely, Jaime)

4. Salted Peanut Butter Cookie Lattes: Cookies are always better when they’re dunked into something. This latte gives you the best of both worlds, making a drink that tastes like the cookie itself. (via Spices in My DNA)

5. Vegan Chai Latte: Creamy, spicy and sweetened with maple syrup, this cold-weather beverage is just what we want to sip when the wind is howling outside. (via Eating by Elaine)

6. Easy Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte: Pumpkin spice hysteria kicks off in August and fades before it really gets cold, which we think is a travesty. This year, enjoy pumpkin spice in the form of this chai latte while you’re bundled up against the snow. (via Good Life Eats)

7. Slow Cooker White Chocolate Cinnamon Lattes: Hot cocoa may be the classic, but white chocolate deserves a little more time in center stage. It’s sweet, indulgent and set off by just a hint of cinnamon in this convenient slow cooker recipe. (via Old House to New Home)

8. Hojicha Cinnamon Latte: Cinnamon gives the green tea latte the extra kick it needs to really keep you warm, no matter what old man winter throws your way. (via Thirsty for Tea)

10. Sipping Caramel: If you’re the type who orders caramel apples at the fair with no intention of actually eating the apple inside, this one’s for you. Thick and rich, this sipping caramel is everything you want a warm winter drink to be. (via Mary’s Making)

11. Chamomile Spiced Apple Cider: This caffeine-free beverage is just the thing to help you sleep. It combines chamomile tea with apple cider, to help calm you at the end of a long day. (via Reclaiming Yesterday)

12. White Hot Chocolate With Bourbon Barrel Stout Marshmallows: White hot chocolate sounds amazing, yes. But what really sets this drink off are the fluffy, homemade bourbon barrel stout marshmallows. (via Beer Girl Cooks)

13. Toasty Turmeric Tonic: If you love juicing, you’ll go wild for this drink. It’s a warm turmeric and carrot juice tonic, the perfect solution on cold days when you just don’t feel like pounding an icy smoothie. (via Pine and Crave)
