Non-alcoholic: Cider for sure and lots of different teas. There are a couple cool tea shops close to my place, so I have been trying some different ones. I also drink quite a bit of coffee.

Alcoholic: Hot Tody's and Spanish Coffees

I've got a solid collection of Herbal teas for the winter months.
But I will be honest, I abuse my espresso maker multiple times a day.
if i didnt have a weak stomach (from years of eating spicy foods) I would drink espressos every day couple of times a day. my wife uses ours religiously. makes me hella jealous.

This may sound gross to some but I like a double espresso with a starlight mint dropped in. For those that don't know a starlight mint is the little red and while circular candy that you often get when exiting restaurants.

On the alcoholic side, Hot cider with a splash of pear vodka is pretty good.

Wassail- would be my fav.

Here's the recipe:

1/2 bottle of apple juice
1/2 bottle of cranberry juice
1 orange (navel)
cloves, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon sticks

Take the orange and pierce it with the cloves, place it along with some allspice, nutmeg and a few cinnamon sticks into the juice. Allow it to simmer all day on low/med heat... its very aromatic and tasty. I use a crockpot so I don't have to leave the stove on all day.

blue blazer

add 3 oz boiling water to metal mug

add 1 oz over proof rum (151), 1 oz bourbon (makers mark 46), 1 oz cognac (remy martin vsop), 4 dashes angostura bitters, 1 oz old fashioned syrup to a second metal mug. light on fire.

slowly begin rolling the alcoholic ingredients and the water back and forth from mug to mug

as you roll the drink, position your mugs and farther and farther apart vertically to increase the length of the flame

once thoroughly mixed, add cinnamon, watch the flame spark, and quickly cap one mug with the other to snuff the flame

serve in a brandy snifter with a slice of lemon



old fashioned syrup:
550 ml turbinado sugar, 200 ml bourbon (makers mark 46), 100 ml angostura bitters. combine in sauce pan over medium heat. stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. let cool and store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
