    Organic Coffee

    Can you even think of starting your day without a cup of hot brimming coffee? Of course not! Now you might be wondering why did I mention organic coffee and not only coffee. Well there are several reasons for that. The amount of pesticides and chemicals that are used in the production of the conventionally grown coffee are really harmful to human health and even increases the adverse effect of coffee. You would certainly not like to start your day with the pesticide flavored coffee instead of naturally aromatic coffee, right? So look for some good quality organic coffee beans in the super market.

    Add a teaspoon of it into boiled water and add sugar to taste. You can also add the extracts of some medicinal herbs if you are looking for the healing of some particular diseases.

    Tom & Jerry

    This famous holiday drink, which has been in demand since the early 1800s, is mainly based on eggs. You just need sugar, egg, rum or brandy (whichever you prefer), milk (you can also use water), spices, including cinnamon, clove and other regular one. To make the entire thing more appealing, serve it in a Tom & Jerry mug!

    Eggnog

    This is probably the most ideal drink for a holiday or a Friday night but you can always try this out if it’s a chilled January or February night. Add some sugar to the eggs and then mix it with cream, milk, nutmeg and bourbon.

    Hot Buttered Rum

    If you are a diehard fan of rum and butter then this is probably the most ideal choice for you. Although the name might suggest otherwise, don’t think that this drink is only about butter and rum; tasty spices such as cloves, cinnamon, sugar, salt and brown sugar add to the richness and taste of this delicious drink. If you prefer the taste of citrus as well, then you may also add a bit of lemon juice to it.

    Hot Chocolate

    Whether it is made from the cocoa bean powder or from the bar chocolate you just a get a drink which is not mere tasty, it is out of the world. While some die for the one made with Abuelita Chocolate, Swiss Miss is also a wonderful option. You can also try out the flavour mixed with sugar cane or the one with a dash of Kahlúa!

    Apart from the taste, you get many more from this drink. Since chocolate is loaded with antioxidants, it also serves to be healthy refreshment.
