On this brisk fall morning there’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee to warm you up and start the day. It’s finally the time of year your local Starbucks Barista stops asking if you want coffee hot or cold. (I never did buy into the whole iced coffee drink) Granted if you’re not much of a coffee drinker there are many other wonderful warm fall drinks out there.
Some people like to start off their morning with a cup of tea or hot chocolate. There’s this great tea shop call Teavana where they have all these wonderful teas for all different times of day and moods. There’s also tons of health benefits to drinking a cup of tea a day. Not to mention there’s always the classic instant hot chocolate mix, but there’s a simple pleasure to melting down some chocolate and making it from scratch. Messy but worth it.
Here at Rule29 we like to break out the traditional Fall punch for certain gatherings. We highly recommend you give it a try.
2 qts of Cranberry Juice
1 qt Apple Cider
Dry ingredients: 1/2 c br sugar, 1 tsp nutmeg, 4 whole cloves and 1 cinnamon stick (broken up)
Just heat it all up in a party coffee pot and feel free to add a splash of Rum
Also a night capper it Hot Buttered Rum. I was first introduced to this yummy drink at Trader Vic’s last winter and it’s become one of my favorites.
