How do hot drinks get cold

Now the cozy season has begun, which we prefer to enjoy with warm drinks and cozy decorations. But it doesn't always have to be a simple tea or hot cocoa that warms us up again after a rain shower. Warm winter drinks can be just as versatile as the many different summer drinks that put us in a good mood at a garden party. With a few additional ingredients, you can conjure up a feel-good drink from cocoa, tea and the like, with which you can really celebrate the autumn and winter days.

Warming up is even nicer in an atmospheric ambience at home. You can easily do this with beautiful cups and tea glasses, winter decorations and cozy sofa covers. I love my collection of different mugs that are easy to hold and with which I can warm up my cold hands after a long time at the computer.

Hot chocolate with peanut butter and splash

When I am surprised by cold rain on my bike in autumn or winter, I imagine the big mug with hot chocolate that I want to warm myself with when I get home.

The ingredients for the hot chocolate with peanut butter and shot

250 ml cow's milk or soy milk

4 pieces of chocolate

1 teaspoon peanut butter

Ground cinnamon

A shot of rum

Some whipped cream


That's how it's done

Warm the milk in a saucepan until it is nice and hot, but not boiling. Put the chocolate pieces in the pot and stir them together with the peanut butter into the milk until everything has dissolved. Then, if you like, add another sip of rum to the hot chocolate. Decorate your drink with some whipped cream and cinnamon.


Winter chai tea

This delicious chai tea invigorates and warms up properly. With just a few more ingredients, a normal everyday tea can be turned into a tea that you can start the day happily with.


The ingredients for the chai tea

0.5 l of water

2 bags of black tea

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cinnamon stick

½ teaspoon ginger

A dash of milk


That's how it's done

Boil the water in a saucepan and then take it off the hob. Hang the tea bags in the water and add all the ingredients to the pot one after the other. Stir in the honey with a spoon until it has dissolved. Let the tea steep for 10 minutes and then pour it through a sieve into a pot or cup.

Hot orange

If you have a special need for vitamin C on the cold days, you should treat yourself to a “hot orange”. It is also a nice non-alcoholic mulled wine alternative for children if you are already preparing a mulled wine. With winter spices, the orange juice tastes really Christmassy.


Ingredients for the hot orange

For 2 to 3 cups

600 ml orange juice

Cinnamon stick

3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon

3 teaspoons of cloves


That's how it's done

Pour the orange juice into a saucepan and heat it up. Add the cinnamon stick, ground cinnamon and cloves and let the orange juice steep for a while. Pour the orange juice through a sieve into the cups or carafe before serving. Drink it warm.

Eggnog desire

Eggnog may not be on the list of trendy drinks. Due to its creamy properties, however, it is an ideal candidate for a creamy punch that will melt our ice feet.


The ingredients for the egg liqueur wish

200 ml milk or soy milk

1 cinnamon stick

125 ml of cream

50 ml egg liqueur

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

4 cl amaretto


That's how it's done

Warms up the milk so that it is hot but not boiling. Add the cinnamon stick and ground nutmeg and stir in the eggnog. Then add the amaretto.

If you are not warmed up yet, then take a look at these Christmas winter drinks. If you need a little kick for your immune system, you should try a drink with manuka honey.


Get through the winter well.

All the best,
