Spiced Golden Milk (non-alcoholic)
Golden milk is the perfect drink to have in the evening. Try it with or without spice. (We love adding an extra kick.) It’s the perfect nourishing drink to relax with and enjoy the benefits of its soothing properties.
Mulled Wine (alcoholic)
Mulled wine (red wine with mulled spices) is a very popular drink at Christmastime, especially throughout Europe. Unfortunately, Europe is more than a couple hours from us, but the Chicago Christmas Market, Christkindlmarket, isn’t! If you want to experience a fantastic Christmas Market with spiced wine and all things German, you should add this to your list of places to visit this holiday season.

Who doesn’t want ice cream in their drink?! You can read more about the history of hot buttered rum here. This is one drink you have to try.
