3 Hot Drink Recipes You Need This Winter


With the holidays over, but winter still in full swing, delicious spiked hot drinks are definitely in order! Below are 3 spiked hot drink recipes that I hope you will all love. These are all perfect for sipping by the fire after a long day of outdoor activities… or just for a relaxing night in! Cheers!



Hot Spiced Pear Apple Cider

*makes 2 drinks

  • 2 cups Apple Cider
  • 2 cups Pear Juice (not from concentrate, no sugar added – just 100% pear juice!)
  • 3 oz. (2 shots) of your favorite Rum
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • sprinkle of nutmeg


  1. In a small pot on low heat bring the cider, pear juice, and nutmeg up to a simmer, whisking often. Simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and divide between 2 mugs. Add a shot of rum and a cinnamon stick to each. Enjoy!



Spiked Coconut Steamer

*makes 2 drinks

  • 2 cups milk or milk alternative ( I use almond milk!)
  • 1/2 cup of canned coconut milk
  • 3 oz. (2 shots) of your favorite Rum
  • 2 tsp. coconut extract
  • 2 tbsp. toasted coconut


  1. In a small pot on medium heat
    bring the milk, coconut milk and coconut extract to a simmer, whisking often. Simmer for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Use a frother to froth the milk mixture. If you don’t have a frother, you can add the liquid to a blender and pulse to achieve some frothiness. Just make sure the mixture has cooled slightly before blending or you could have an explosive mess on your hands!
  3. Divide rum between 2 mugs.
  4. Evenly pour the frothed milk mixture
    into the mugs, holding back the foam with a spoon and spooning it
    onto the top of the liquid at the end.
  5. Garnish with the toasted coconut. Enjoy!!
