15 Warm Drinks To Cozy Up With This Fall
Drinks like hot chocolate, apple cider, and mulled wine are a tasty reminder that it's fall — and therefore, time to warm up and cozy down. While we love the classic varieties, we're all about elevating the flavors with a twist too. Mix things up with ingredients like coconut, rose water, Earl Grey tea, even edible glitter! We consider it self care for your taste buds. Bookmark these recipes for the holiday season for dinner and party guests. Yum!
Chef and chocolatier Jacques Torres had a dream to bring French-style hot chocolate to the States, and now you can make his famous recipe at home. Try alongside one of his perfect chocolate chip cookies!
We added a tropical twist on a seasonal fave, and it's delicious. And dairy-free too!
We added pistachios, rose water, and petals to thick Italian hot chocolate and hit the jackpot. The rose water gives just a hint of that Turkish delight flavor, while the pistachio adds crunchy texture and a lovely nutty taste.
We decided to give our hot chocolate some intergalactic love by decking it out with a glittery flair using edible glitter and white chocolate. While this may look too pretty to drink, you best believe it tastes just as good as it looks.
This delicious drink will not only keep you warm, it will also perfume your house with the warming scent of cinnamon and apples. You can make it even healthier by adding a spoonful of ACV (apple cider vinegar).

One of our favorite creations is this mulled wine hot chocolate: aromatic mulled wine infused with orange and spices, and mixed with warm cocoa. Not your typical milky cocoa (we don't want any curdling disasters), this is a water-based cocoa made sweet and rich with brown sugar.
Start the holiday season early with this winter staple. We spiked the classic hot apple cider with cinnamon whiskey and honey whiskey.
