A Winter Wonderland of Honey Flavors
The festive feel in the air, gatherings with family and friends, and of course, the delicious holiday feasts are among the many reasons we look forward to the winter months. From decadent dishes to comforting drinks, the aromas and tastes of winter are unlike any other time of year. This season, the National Honey Board and Melissa Bailey, author of the popular recipe blog Hungry Food Love, have created delectable honey-based drinks the whole family can enjoy! While eateries and coffee shops may draw us in with their seasonal offerings, nothing beats a warm, homemade drink with honey to get you through the cold winter days.
“Honey has always been one of my favorite ingredients to experiment with in the kitchen because there’s simply nothing else like it,” states Melissa. “Its wholesomeness and unique flavor has always impressed me, and these qualities have motivated me to try it in a multitude of food recipes – and now in these new honey-infused drinks!”
Aside from the special touch it adds to this new festive drink menu, honey also contributes its benefit as an all-natural cough suppressant. With options as tasty as the Honey Caramel Coffee, Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate with Honey and Spiced Mandarin Orange Tea with Honey, mixing up a warm honey beverage to get through the cough and cold season is both easy and palatable. A native of the Dominican Republic, Melissa grew up with an appreciation for both honey’s flavor and its all-natural ability to ease the irritation of a cough. This golden, one-ingredient sweetener is your best ally against the cold weather months ahead.
These honeylicious new drinks are the perfect treat to share with loved ones on a holiday morning, brunch or evening get together – and you’ll be happy the winter season has enough cold days in it to enjoy each drink! Make staying bundled up indoors with a hot honey drink in hand your new favorite pastime of the season!
