One of my favourite things about winter is all the delicious hot drinks! I just love to snuggle up after a hard day with my hot drink, a blanket and my latest crochet project. I’m a huge fan of Costa and Starbucks Christmas ranges, I just love the Eggnog Latte from Starbucks and Hot Spiced Apple from Costa, however I find buying these drinks all the time the cost can really add up. So, I’ve been on the lookout this year for the best alternatives to have at home for that wintery festive feel, at half the price. Here are my favourite fruity hot drinks this year….
Fruitbroo* are the new way to enjoy a fruity hot drink on those cold wintery nights! They come in a lovely range of wintery flavours – my favourite being the Rhubarb, Apple & Cinnamon, a warming mix of rhubarb and spice, which reminds me of a hot rhubarb crumble. The best thing about them is that they are only 15 calories a cup and made from completely natural ingredients. They are super easy to make, just boil the kettle, add one or two teaspoons of the mixture to hot water and enjoy! I really like these drinks as they are caffeine free, perfect for a late night brew. Each of these little bottles makes around 15 cups and can be bought from either Sainsburys or online at £2.50 per bottle.
For a naughty treat I am loving a hot glass of Mulled Wine. This bottle of Ginger Mulled Wine was only £2.50 from Asda, I love the new twist to the classic mulled wine taste with added an added punch of ginger and spice. It’s delicious, it even smells gorgeous just warming it through. Perfect for a hard day when it’s cold and bleak outside!
It’s non-alcoholic counterpart for the lesser ‘naughty’ days is this cordial by Rocks*. All organic this makes the perfect alternative to mulled wine as it’s very similar in taste – this virgin mulled wine recipe tastes just as good! Rocks cordials are organic, additive free and made here in the UK so definitely the healthier option of the two! Rocks cordials can be found online or at many health food stores across the UK.
