9 Delicious Drinks To Warm Up With This Fall

9 Delicious Drinks To Warm Up With This Fall

With the weather starting to get cooler, it's time put away those cold-brew coffees and iced teas and pick up a drink that's going to warm your heart. You could always go traditional with black coffee, of course, or try hot chocolate, hot apple cider, or tea — but why not a hot toddy? A hot toddy is perfect for cool fall nights — it includes rum or bourbon or some other spirit, water, lemon, cinnamon, and cloves. Rumor has it that if you drink a hot toddy when you're sick, you'll be well in hours. Having a warm drink is the perfect way to welcome fall, which is why we made it the theme of this week's SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

Maple Hot Toddy

Bourbon-Spiked Hot Apple Cider

While mulled apple cider is delicious all on its own when it's spiked with bourbon it taste a whole lot better. If you have kids, serve them the apple cider sans bourbon and add in the liquor afterwards. This is the perfect recipe for a small group of four or a large group of ten.
