There’s nothing like a warm drink and a good book to make you feel cozy on a wintery day, so today we’re expanding our previous book and tea combinations to find you some more cozy-feeling pairs!
Gingerbread Hot Cocoa and My True Love Gave to Me – Gingerbread always makes us feel in the holiday mood, so why not pick up a holiday book to go with it? Nobody said you had to contain your festive mood to December.
Nutella Hot Chocolate and Roseblood – Everybody goes gaga over Nutella (case in point), so putting it in hot cocoa is kind of a no-brainer. And when drinking hot chocolate with a small twist, it only seems right to pick up a YA book that’s a twist on a classic.
Mocha Morning Drink and When Dimple Met Rishi – The famous iced coffee throw is on the back cover of this book, but iced coffee might be a bit too cold this time of year, so we thought you might want a warm alternative that’s also sweet – just like the book.
Mulled Dr. Pepper and Done Dirt Cheap – While this recipe calls for Dr. Pepper, you can probably mix it with any soda to get that regular mulled drink vibe with an unexpected twist. It might just remind you of the friendship in this book.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate and Anna and the French Kiss – Anna really loves mint chocolate cookies, so a minty hot chocolate sounds right up her alley. Plus, the book itself is just as cozy and comforting as a cup of this tasty stuff.
White Fudge Oreo Hot Cocoa and Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda – While Simon is an Oreo purist, even he may make an exception for this hot chocolate (but it can probably be adapted with regular Oreos instead of White Fudge ones). And this will be perfect to get you ready for the movie in March!
Coconut Tres Leches Hot Chocolate and Water in May – Tres leches is a dessert loved around the world, so why not combine it with cocoa. While you’re stressing along with Mari about the choices she has to make, at least you’ll have something comforting to drink.
Comforting Coffee Milk and A Taxonomy of Love – Spencer and Hope’s story goes from when they meet at age 13 until they’re 18. When we’re 13, we’re still encouraged to drink our milk every day, but coffee becomes a staple as we grow older. This recipe combines some of the strong stuff with a nod to our younger years, perfect for these two friends.
Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider and The Weight of Feathers – A caramel apple never gets old, and it’s something often associated with carnivals, so why not pair it with a magical book about competing traveling performers?
