Picture this: a chilly night spent wrapped in a fluffy blanket you made yourself, holding a hot drink in your favorite mug. There’s nothing quite like it to immediately make you feel calm and want to let out a big exhale, so embrace that hygge lifestyle with these must-make drinks that’ll keep you cozy all season long.
1. Classic Hot Cocoa
Once you DIY your own hot cocoa mix, you’ll never go back to store-bought. You only need five ingredients for this go-to drink, but you can customize it with additives like edible lavender, maple sugar or even crushed candy canes.
2. Pumpkin Spice Latte
Contrary to popular opinion, you don’t actually need fancy equipment to make a PSL at home. So save your cash and make this fall staple in a saucepan come morning.
3. Spiced Apple Cider
Turning apple juice into hot cider is easy as 1-2-3. Seriously — you can whip up a batch in just three steps with only a handful of ingredients.
4. Salted Caramel Apple Cider
Once you’ve made your apple cider, pump it up with a spoonful (or two) of caramel sauce. It’s the perfect drink for both morning and evening, especially when sipped alongside a tasty pumpkin treat.
5. Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
When PSLs and hot cocoa collide, you know you’re doing this “cozy” thing right. The iconic blend of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg gives your chocolate-y drink a burst of fall flavor you can’t not indulge in.
6. Eggnog Latte
This drink is basically Christmas in a cup. (But if you choose to sip it on a chilly October night, we won’t tell.) Best part: you can make it in an espresso machine, or right in your microwave!
7. Hot Buttered Rum
With actual butter, warming spices, dark brown sugar and (of course) rum, this drink is exactly what you need to keep warm all season. Whip it up when you have company for a truly soul-soothing beverage.
