Festive Drinks to Try This Month! Cooleraid Tips

It’s officially Christmas season! December is upon us and with that comes the Christmas hysteria, and we couldn’t help but get involved. Now we all know that we’re a nation of tea and coffee drinkers, often reaching for up to 5 (ok sometimes 7) cups just in our working day! It keeps us going, warms our system and offers a welcome relief from that report you were going over. But ‘tis the season after all so it’s time to give your usual tea or coffee a festive replacement.

A Warming Ginger Tea

Not only super healthy but the kick of ginger is sure to warm your inners! Take a small root of ginger, peel, slice and add to your mug of hot water. Add a drizzle of organic honey for a little sweet addition if required and you have yourself a festive warmer. Ginger is said to hold many healing properties such as the ability to help with nausea, sore throats, congestion and relief to inflamed joints.

A Cinnamon Spice

What could get more Christmassy than cinnamon?! Add a stick of cinnamon to your mug of warm water, add a few slices of apple to give it a festive cider taste, and you have yourself winter in a cup! Cinnamon has been used as a medicine for years to aid with muscle spasms, cut the risk of heart disease and it’s also packed with anti-oxidants.

A Splash of Honey

Honey has a never-ending list of benefits, not only is it amazing at fighting off infection it can also sooth a sore winter throat and heal respiratory issues. Add one or two (depending on how bad your sweet tooth is) to a mug of warm water, add a slice of lemon for a little zing and you’ve got a drink your immune system will be thankful for!

Winter Berry Warmer

One for those with a sweet tooth! Infuse your warm water with a few blackberries and cranberries to sweeten your drink and also count as one of your five a day – bonus! Blackberries are said to have a positive impact on your motor and cognitive skills so it’s time to get picking those blackberries!

Gingerbread Latte

This one requires a few more ingredients but it’s definitely worth it! In your mug, mix together your 3-4 shots of coffee with one teaspoon of cinnamon, one teaspoon of ground ginger and one teaspoon of sugar. Whisk together and add half a cup of steamed (or frothed – your call) milk and then enjoy!
