Now I am not a big drinker and it is not for any real reason except that I do not like the taste of alcohol. I can do vodka mixed with other stuff so I cannot taste it but what is the use of that? Anyways I wish I could list the pumpkin beers or spiked cider or other festive drinks of the season, but I do not like any of them. So I will list some of my favorite seasonal drinks with no alcohol.
Despite not drinking a lot of coffee I really like Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks. I feel that everyone and there momma like this but they are so dang tastey!
Sertinos Coffee is a local joint in the Golden Triangle and they serve a Mexican Hot Chocolate that is out of this world! It is steamed milk with Mexican spice chocolate and I wish it was colder in my neck of the woods so I could drink this more.
Hot Apple Cider! I have never made cider but I always get it when someone offers but this recipe looks way too easy to pass up.
I love Tea Forte. I got this for Christmas one year and I have been drinking it like crazy ever since. Plus it helps me when I study, it is a great smooth and calming tea. And it doesn't hurt that the packaging is so darn cute especially if you have the cups to go with it. I am hoping to find a Autumn Collection like this or I my just break down and order it online.
It is true that all of these recipes can go throughout the whole cold season but it starts now.
