- When I was in elementary school, my go-to gift was making Russian Tea for friends and family each Christmas.
- Our neighbors came to know they could always enjoy a cup of hot apple cider on a cold Halloween night – self-serve from our front porch.
- Every year when we decorated the tree with the kids, we always drank hot cocoa from Christmas mugs with holiday music playing in the background.
Serving the same specialty beverage every year at your holiday event is an easy way to start a new tradition. Soon, your beverage and event will go together like popcorn and the movies. Your whole family will anticipate it and your tradition will take root as a special memory as time goes on.
In order to help you create your own beverage traditions, I’ll be posting different beverage recipes leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some of the hot ones simmer all day and will fill the house with the most wonderful aroma of apples and cinnamon. What a lovely way to greet your guests!
