It's beginning to feel a lot like...winter
November in Atlanta is typically a lovely time of year. The trees change colors and begin to shed their leaves and the temperatures cool off - but the past few days (it's in the 30s right now - ugh!) have felt a lot more like fall in the Midwest. I actually had to put on a hat and mittens to walk my dog this morning.
I know, I know...I'm a Chicago girl living in the South - I shouldn't be whining about brisk weather. Still, there is nothing fun about trudging out the door at 7 a.m. to a face full of cold air. Fortunately, I was able to warm up with a cup of joe, followed by a giant hot tea an hour later. True story - I once successfully made it through a Bears-Packers night game that went into double overtime in sub-zero temperatures thanks to a large hot cocoa mixed with Baileys. Did I mention that my beer froze in the cupholder that night? Brrrrr...brings back chilly memories.
Anyway, for anyone else looking for ways to warm up on a cold day, here are a few of my favorite sugar-free hot drinks. Enjoy!
Spiced Hot Cranberry Cider
Mexican Hot Chocolate
Holiday Spiced Tea
Peppermint Mocha Delight
