Houston, we have a problem.
I have too much to say (shocker), and not enough days to do it. My editorial calendar is so jam-packed of awesome, half-finished posts. I am just bursting to share so many things with you.
Nonetheless, I’m magnanimously ignoring all of that today so that I can share a round-up of some fantastic hot drink recipes. It has been a brutal month of cold weather for much of North America, with the mean ol’ Polar Vortex curling its icy tendrils even down to the Southern United States.
Here, we’re pretty used to it, but that doesn’t mean I’m not already dreaming of spring. Tulips, warm rainy days, garden planting, grass growing… ok, that’s mean. I’ll stop.
But seriously, peeps. It has been a long winter thus far, and you are probably just as tired of your usual hot drink go-to’s as I am. And you can tell Houston that we have a new problem: I’m FREEZING. I’m tired of wearing two pairs of socks. Time for some new hot drink inspiration, amiright?!
(Related and perhaps helpful post? 28 Reasons to Not Hate Winter. It’s worth a try, anyway.)
Here are 50 new recipes to tempt your tastebuds and warm your belly.
Stay warm, my loves!
