My wife makes some weak tea with a tea bag in a 2-qt pump pot like in the photo, and we drink it all day.

I like to drink hot broth too, but have cut that out because of the sodium.

I take the endothermic approach during cold weather - a hot bath before dinner, followed by an ice cold Pale Ale.

I'm with you Walt, they are forecasting 12 tonight and that's quite chilly for the southern folks here in Georgia. I broke out my Kerig (still in the box from cleaning out my office) and have been drinking some nice for cocoa. I'm usually a coffee drinker, but this could weather calls for the good stuff!

I also prefer cold drinks, even when it is cold outside.

Sorry, kids, but I gotta one-up you. 12:27 AM and -15F in East Nowhere, in upstate NY.
Perfect temperature for a nice cold bottle of Coors Lite.

I can distinctly hear the "Rodeo Song" in my mind. Google it and by all means listen closely to the words. Stomp that foot, clap those hands, and laugh.

I used to drink apple cider with mulling spices and a cinnamon stick. And a dash of rum. Now it's a herbal infusion, usually lemon ginger with a drop of honey.

Cocoa or homemade mocha are my comfort drinks. I have even had plain hot water at times--very nice when you're sick and trying to keep up with fluids. Really helps a dry cough and a sore throat.

7 degrees here, 3 in VA for DS driving back to college today. Below zero windchill. I put on long underwear, hat, gloves, a neck gaiter, in addition to my jacket to take out the garbage last night. I stayed warm and comfy.

By day, hot chocolate with a dash of cinnamon and cayenne pepper, no sugar.

By night, another vote for imperial stouts. A little Jim Beam doesn't hurt either.

Yep - definitely better not to post after too much wine. LOL.

Spanish Coffee!

3/4 oz. 151-proof rum
1/2 oz. triple sec (Huber’s uses Bols)
2 oz. Kahlúa
3 oz. fresh-brewed coffee
Glass: sugar-rimmed red wine or Irish coffee glass (make sure it's tempered)
Garnish: lightly whipped cream and sprinkling of ground nutmeg

Add the rum and the triple sec to the sugar-rimmed glass and carefully ignite. Add Kahlúa (the flame should go out at this point) and top with hot coffee. Garnish.

Oh, it will be 72 here in Scottsdale today!

When I am up at my home at 7,000 ft, I like shots of Cognac to keep me warm. I had to keep a watch on the consumption of this "alternative energy" source because of the side effects. I keep the inside at 60F, and the energy from a shot does not last long.

It's 34.2°F outside right now, but to most New Orleanians this feels bitterly cold. I had to go outside for a minute to mess with the trash, and now I'm inside guzzling massive quantities of very hot decaf. Oh, so good! Warming up now. I turned the thermostat back up as well.

I'm like you - a warm weather bird.

Dreadful sorry for y'all suffering this brutal cold.
