With how cold it has been recently, and I am sure this is not the last time we will see temperatures like this, I decided to compile a list of some of my favorite warm drinks to help keep you warm (or at least simulate it). I do enjoy coffee, but it was so obvious, I kept it off the list. Who doesn't love waking up to a hot cup of joe?

3. Chai Tea

Another fantastic option indeed. It is one of those drinks that have been around forever, and is continually underrated. There are also so many different flavors you can mix with it, too! It is also a great option other than coffee, which some people believe they need a healthier choice.

2. Apple Cider

Apple Cider is so versatile, it had to make the list. You can drink it just plain, or maybe add a touch of cinnamon. Also, it goes great if you want to mix it for an adult. You know, to make it an 'adult beverage' which is always fantastic! Apple Cider is one of those beverages that you grow up loving. Practically just warm apple juice. What could go wrong?

1. Hot Chocolate

It is an obvious classic. When I was young, the neighbor kids and I would go outside and build snow forts in another neighbors yard. I am not quite sure how we got away with it, really, but we would stay outside all day. Well, we would actually stay outside for a couple hours, come in and drink about a gallon of hot chocolate, and go back out.

What is your favorite beverage on a cold day?
