Cozy Vanilla Drink

I love a cozy warm drink that makes you feel like a soft warm blanket is wrapped all around and snuggles you in.  This is a family-friendly drink I created that you would vow came from a gourmet shop.  This fabulous vanilla beverage is not sticky sweet like so many, but, instead decedent and a fabulous self-indulgent treat you don’t want to miss.
