9 Fabulous Family Friendly Hot DrinksI have been working hard for you to put together a collection of hot drinks that are family friendly; drinks that everyone can enjoy.  These are not the usual packets that come in a box, nor the taste by a long shot either.  I wanted to bring you a collection of some instant that you can make ahead to mix with hot water in a hurry. I also have some unique drinks such as the hot buttered rum drink that is made from a batter you keep in the freezer.  The salted caramel hot chocolate rivals anything you can purchase, believe me, and try it with smoked salt…oohh, now that’s a treat.  I have links here on the following pages for each of the drinks shown.  They are listed from 1 to 9 though they are all favorites. I hope you enjoy them – we sure have!

  1. Omg, these are absolutely perfect, especially for the winter snow storm we are supposed to be having here this weekend. Can’t decide which I want to try first now either, but definitely going to be trying a few!! 🙂

    All of these drinks sound so delicious and comforting. It has been so cold here in Arkansas. Parts of the state are expecting a few inches of snow today and in the morning. I need to fix some of this instant cocoa mix and have it on hand when we are so cold.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • I hope you haven’t been getting too much more snow and cold Diane. It’s been a hard winter already in your part I believe. Let me know if you liked the instant cocoa and tried the chocolate or white. Keep warm:)

    Wow…you’ve done a fantastic job on this Carrie! These all look so delicious I wish I had some right now! 🙂

  4. Can’t wait to try some of these! I love a warm drink in the wintertime. Phillip makes up these yummy pumpkin-flavored warm milk drinks that warm you up from the inside out, but I don’t want to get tired of them so maybe we’ll put these in the rotation.

    • Hey Jenny, you’ll have to share your hubby’s famous pumpkin-flavored warm milk, it sounds absolutely wonderful! Let me know it any of mine do make the rotation, and please send the post link of your drink for us to try too:)
