1. Tea And Hot Cider

When it’s not really cold but just chilly enough for you to wear a jacket, go for this drink. It is literally just tea brewed in cider instead of water. Also, coming from the amazing Martha Stewart, it is a guaranteed recipe of awesomeness.

The sound of it is enough to make anyone’s mouth water! Bring water, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt to a boil in a pan. Once that’s done, remove from the stove, and stir in the rum. Your hot cocktail is ready!

It’s really perfect for a winter evening with friends, while watching a kick-ass movie, maybe?

It’s a known fact that ginger is ‘the’ ingredient for winter. Apart from fighting cold, it builds up your immunity. Jamie Oliver has taken ginger and thrown it in with pear to make the most amazing drink ever.

Boil apple juice in a pan, and then add ginger, pears, cinnamon, cardamom and sugar. Squeeze in lemon and voila, your hot cuppa is ready!
