As the temperatures have dropped, and snow has begun to fall, there has been one thing on my mind: What hot beverage will I enjoy today? It’s a serious question, as there are quite a few to choose from, but I decided to rank my personal favorites. Feel free to disagree with my list and submit your own. Without further ado, here are my top five hot drinks to enjoy this winter.
5. Hot Apple Cider
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “How is this last on the list when it’s so good?” For me, it’s simple—apple cider is primarily only in season in the fall and beginning of winter. Nonetheless, it made my list because it’s actually amazing. It’s sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth, with just enough spice to really put you in the fall mood. All in all, hot apple cider is a delicious drink.
4. Hot Chai Tea
Next on my list is hot chai tea. Chai tea is a tea brewed with cinnamon, brown sugar, ginger, nutmeg and basically all the spices that make me think of pie. This is perfect for when you get struck with a three week strain of the Raider Plague. It has all the normal benefits of tea, while also being different enough to not burn you out too quickly.
3.Mocha Mint Latte
If you’ve been to Dunkin Donuts in the last few weeks, you would have noticed their new seasonal menu. I was skeptical at first because I’ve never had mint coffee, but I was blown away. Their mocha mint latte is the perfect chocolate flavor, with just enough peppermint to make it different. Despite trying it for the first time last week, this drink quickly made it on my top five list.
2. Hot Chocolate
Hot Chocolate is such a classic choice. There are so many variations of it that are all equally delicious. When I think of hot chocolate, I think of picking out my Christmas tree and decorating with my family. Hot chocolate is number two on my list because it’s delicious and nostalgic at the same time.
1.Frosted White Chocolate Latte
This is yet another one of Dunkin’s seasonal drinks, but it’s so good. I tried this one for the first time a few days ago, and I was completely blown away. The latte is actually not too sweet considering it’s white chocolate, which impressed me. It was truly delicious, and I recommend it to everyone.
