Winter Beverages

By RockN W Report Intern, Paige Brandon

The best way to warm up after feeling a chill to your bones? From the inside out, of course! Grab your favorite mug, grab a spot by the fireplace, and experiment with these winter beverages that all cowgirls should try. They will leave you feeling warm from the inside out!

  1. Coffee. Having to feed in the early morning cool on your ranch? Make your coffee the way you like it and add a touch of cinnamon to it. The coffee and cinnamon create a lovely flavor that you will wake you right up!
  2. Hot chocolate. Good ol’ hot chocolate is a winter must! It goes perfectly with curling up next to the fire. Add a cinnamon stick and a dash of chili powder for a cowgirl kick to your cup.
  3. Apple Cider. The easiest way to make apple cider is to pour apple juice into a crockpot, add mulling spices and cinnamon sticks, then let it warm in there. Bring this drink on a trail rideto keep you warm!
  4. Sparkling Grape Juice. Nothing says cheers to dreaming of spring like drinking sparkling grape juice! Add blueberries to the glass to add even more flavor to your festive drink.
  5. Atole. Atole is a Mexican drink that steeps cinnamon and vanilla in water, then adds milk and cornmeal to create a creamy, tasty drink. You can find recipes for this online or purchase at your local coffee shop!
  6. Cowgirl Milkshake. When the fire gets too hot or the blankets make you sweat, cool down with a “cowgirl milkshake.” Find prickly pear juice and strawberries at your local store. Add ice cream, milk, prickly pear juice and strawberries to a blender. Blend until smooth. The blender will leave you with a pink, sweet and divine drink!
  7. Warm Horchata. The flavors of your typical horchata are the best wintertime drink! The blend of cinnamon, vanilla and honey melt in your mouth. You can find a recipe to create a warm horchata! There are also recipes for hot chocolate horchata (delicious!).
  8. Infused water. Just because it’s cold out, does not mean you should be slacking on your water intake. Infuse your water with strawberries, limes, and lemons for a taste of strawberry lemonade.
  9. Tea. Tea is great for sore throats after spending the day in the winter wind or for having at brunch with other cowgirl friends.
  10. Vanilla Steamer. With milk, vanilla and some sugar, vanilla steamers are a great way to wind down after a long day!
