posted by Chris Valentine

During the winter, it can be challenging to concentrate. The cold temperatures and lack of light leave people feeling tired and restless.

If you’re looking for a warm, tasty treat to help you get rid of your winter blues, look no further than the drinks mentioned below. These beverages are quick and easy to prepare (not to mention, they taste delightful).

1 – Winter Lemonade

If you always have a pitcher full of lemonade in your fridge during the summer, you need to try this tasty treat during the winter. This beverage is a unique take on the summer staple, but with a bit of a twist.

To make winter lemonade, heat some water in a pot. As the water is heating, slice up four to six lemons (or to taste) and add them into the water. Add in some brown sugar and stir it into the lemon mixture. Once the mixture has cooled, pour it into a mug and garnish with a cinnamon stick. Voila!

Winter lemonade is a delicious drink that is perfect for people that are fighting a cold. This is thanks to the significant quantity of vitamin C in the lemon juice.

If you want to make your winter lemonade even healthier, feel free to add a few slices of ginger. Ginger is full of anti-inflammatory gingerols, which can provide pain relief if you have a sore throat. Ginger can also kill rhinoviruses, which are one of the primary causes of the common cold.

2 – Cannabis-Infused Tea

Countless people around the world enjoy drinking tea. It’s a nutritious beverage that is beneficial in a plethora of ways. Some examples include:

  • Improves oral health
  • Provides the drinker with energy
  • Contains antioxidants

Recently, a new type of tea has emerged: cannabis-infused tea. This variety of tea contains both THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and/or CBD (cannabidiol).

THC is the psychoactive compound in cannabis that makes people feel relaxed and happy. CBD is the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis that can help people fight anxiety and relieve pain.

Brewing a pot of cannabis-infused tea is a unique way to enjoy your weekend or day off from work.

Even though there are a number of retailers that have cannabis tea for sale, you shouldn’t buy it from just any company. If you’re looking for a reliable retailer, you should consider trying some premier cannabis tea from Olli. The company has been working around the clock to come up with the best recipes for their cannabis-infused products.

3 – Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate

Did someone say pumpkin spice? This ingredient has become the go-to addition to coffees and lattes over the past few years. But have you ever tried adding it to hot chocolate?

Although it may sound a little strange, this mix is addictive and delicious. Simply pour your favorite hot chocolate mix into a pot. Add in milk (the fat percentage doesn’t matter, use whatever you have on hand) and heat it up until it’s warm and frothy. Sprinkle in some pumpkin spice and stir until it’s thoroughly mixed.

Once the ingredients are seamlessly mixed, pour the mixture into a mug and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and another hint of pumpkin spice. Who wants some?

Next time the winter weather has you feeling down, perk up your day with one of the tasty drinks mentioned above.
