Blog article image

In the mood to warm up, but don’t want to turn to the booze? A spiked hot beverage can be good for the soul, but so can a non-alcoholic one! In this blog we cover our favorite non-alcoholic hot drinks that are perfect for the blustery and grey winter evenings. Serve these up for friends and family, or mix one up for a self-care night in!


Hand-Crafted Hot Chocolate

While there’s nothing wrong with the mixes, kick your hot cocoa game up a notch by going homemade. With it’s thick texture and just the right amount of sweetness, a mug of chocolate can go a long way on a cold winter night. Check out our favorite unique hot chocolate recipes here!

London Fog Tea

A London Fog is classy, simple, and unbelievably tasty. Made with Earl Grey tea and steamed milk, this hot drink can be customized to your taste. Add sugar or vanilla extract for extra sweetness and depth of flavor, or keep it to simply tea and milk. 


Enjoy this beverage while sitting by the fireplace with friends, or even on your morning commute! Earl Grey has a hint of caffeine, so if you need a nightcap you may want to find some decaf tea leaves. 


Need a tumbler to keep your drink hot? Use the BrüMate Imperial Pint for your coffee, tea, cocktails, and anything else you enjoy sipping on. This versatile tumbler holds up to 20 ounces of your favorite beverage, and has a special leak-proof lid with an anti-slip base to support you when you’re on the move. Plus, this tumbler is cup-holder friendly so that your tea doesn’t spill on a commute! 


Mulled Apple Cider 

Filled with spices and bursts of citrus flavor, mulled apple cider will surely spark your taste buds! This drink is made with cinnamon, cloves, allspice, orange, lemon, and maple syrup for some extra sweetness. If you’re a fan of mulled wine but want something that isn’t spiked, this could be the drink for you!

When it comes to mulled apple cider, you’ll likely want more than one helping. The BrüMate Toddy XL can help with just that by holding up to 32 ounces of your hot cider. Like all BrüMate products, this tumbler is fully leakproof and triple insulated to ensure that your drink is hot from the first sip to the last.

Hot Chai Latte 

If a spiced chai latte is your go-to at the coffee shops, have you ever tried making one at home? This drink does contain a small amount of caffeine, but is still perfectly fine for an afternoon or evening pick me up! 


The best part about making chai at home is that it’s easily customizable. You’ll need some milk (pro-tip: try a plant based milk for extra flavor!), chai tea bags, spices, and a sweetening agent. For an extra kick, try adding a shot of espresso for a dirty chai! This spiced hot drink goes perfectly with dessert if you aren’t in the mood for something boozy.

Vanilla Steamers

A steamer consists of steamed milk, a flavor shot, and sometimes spices. The vanilla steamer is a classic caffeine-free order at any coffee shop, and is one of the most comforting drinks on chilly days. These are a great beverage to serve up for friends, and for those craving an extra kick, they can spike their steamer with Baileys or rum! 


Hot Not Toddy 

A classic Hot Toddy contains whiskey or dark rum, perfect for warming your insides in the winter time. While Hot Toddy’s are great with a kick, you don’t need alcohol to achieve the same cozy effect. Make a Hot “Not” Toddy for a soothing hot drink. While these beverages are great for just about any occasion, the mixture of honey and lemon can be great for curing a sore throat! 


Sip on your toddy with the BrüMate Toddy tumbler. This tumbler is the same as the Toddy XL, just half the size! Available in a variety of colors, you’ll find a tumbler that is perfect for hanging with friends, or a solo movie night on the couch.
