Hot, creamy and boozy
With the curfew still in place, the rains and the cold that comes with it, maybe it’s time to get creative about your hot beverage of choice.
We experimented with a few alcoholic drinks and mixed them with our favourite hot drinks so that you don’t have to. As such, here are a few hot alcoholic drinks to chase away the cold and keep your weekend exciting.
We named these drinks but if you can do better, give us a shout out here, here and here.

This your cup of cocoa with a twist. For a normal cup of cocoa, you’ll one teaspoon of cocoa, one piece of cooking chocolate and one shot of your choice of cream liqueur. To sweeten you can add syrup or honey.
You can add whipped cream or ice cream on the top for that extra foam.

Add a shot of vodka to a normal cup of dawa to add a kick to the spicy drink. Boil your ginger roots for 10 to 15 minutes. Once the ginger has seeped into the water, sieve the ginger water into a mug, add lemon juice from one lemon and one shot of vodka. Add syrup or honey to sweeten.
