Mulled Wine, Germany

A warm red wine makes an excellent holiday beverage. Enjoy a German hot wine tradition with spices and citrus. It is enjoyed all around Europe. German and Austrians call it gluhwein, while Scandinavians know it as glogg. It’s been said that wine has been served this way since Roman times.

Cafe Mexicano, Mexico

Mexicans celebrate Christmas with a coffee twist, a heavenly drink for coffee lovers. Pour some chocolate syrup into a warmed cup, add the coffee, and top it off with a dollop of thick cream and cinnamon. If you are feeling a bit boozy, spice it up with some brandy.
