Being stuck indoors does however give us parents the chance to slow down and engage in winter slumber, spend quality time with the family and hopefully continue or start some winter traditions.
I have a sore throat from HELL so I found myself searching for some warm drink recipes that go beyond the boring cup of tea to soothe me. I found some pretty cool ones! There are quite a few for kids.....and some for after the kids go to bed, LOL!
Don't overlook a classic cup of hot apple cider or cocoa (don't forget the marshmellows, they make it so much more magical). Instead of a processed pack of the above mentioned get a little creative. Trader Joe's makes a great apple cider and mullings spices to add to it!
Egg Nog Chai
Wether you use chair powder or a tea bag.....milk or water, try mixing your chai with egg nog, it has a festive and unique flavor!
