Hot Drinks for New Year's
Welcome loved ones in from the cold with a mug of traditional mulled wine.
Steamy Hot Chocolate
Hot chocolate is the perfect after-dinner drink to serve everyone (young and old) at your New Year's gathering.
Apple Pie-Spiced Cider
What's better on a winter night than warm apple cider? Ours is flavored with cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg.
Chai Tea with Soy Milk
Chai tea has been a favorite refreshment in India for centuries. Essentially a blend of tea, ground spices, honey, and milk, it can be enjoyed hot or cold. Our version, which replaces cow's milk with soy milk, is served hot.
Hot Buttered Rum
This variation on the basic recipe takes advantage of the deep flavor in a good, dark rum, perfectly enhanced by a spiced butter made with brown sugar -- rum's raw material -- and assertive spices such as cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Orange zest adds the exclamation point.
Keep guests buzzing with excitement until the ball drops with this creamy espresso beverage.
St. Patrick's Day isn't the only holiday an Irish Coffee hits the spot -- it's also a welcome after-dinner treat on New Year's Eve.

Ultimate Hot Chocolate

Mexican chocolate is flavored with cinnamon, almonds, and vanilla. It is available in Mexican markets and some supermarkets.
Give plain black tea a twist with this easy-to-make recipe.
Hot Cocoa with Almond Milk
Use any nut, rice, or soy milk to make this dairy-free take on a classic.
This winter nightcap is garnished with both ground cinnamon and a cinnamon stick.
Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa
Anyone who loves chocolate and peanut butter in candy form will find this hot drink irresistible.
Roasted-Pineapple Hot Buttered Rum
This spin on hot buttered rum has a cardamom-spiced pineapple puree in the mix. Because the fruit is roasted, the punch takes some time to prepare, but it pays off in decadent flavor.
Rosy Cranberry Cider
As an alternative to apple cider, try this mulled beverage made with cranberry juice.
