When the landscape glistens with new-fallen snow, it’s time to gather with family and friends and have a cup of cheer.
The perfect potion on a cold winter’s day, this seasonal sipper will warm everyone’s spirits. Of course you can leave out the alcohol and just enjoy the creamy hot chocolate instead, if desired.
Whichever way you prefer, here’s wishing you a holly, jolly Christmas—this year. Cheers!
