8 Hot Chocolate Alternatives to Enjoy in Your Pajamas

8 Soul-Warming Drinks to Sip in Your Pajamas

Work hard, nap hard. We believe that weekends should be dedicated to rest and relaxation after a long week. Weekends are for takeout menus, Netflix binges, and ignoring your inbox. Now slip into your favorite flannels and a fluffy bathrobe and don’t take them off until Monday.

During the winter months, there is no better pairing than your couch, cozy pajamas, and a cup of hot chocolate. Slowly sipping a warm beverage is like hosting a spa day for your soul. Hot chocolate is everyone’s favorite go-to, but if you want to mix it up, give one of these hot drink recipes a try.

Lounge in your favorite pajamas this weekend.

Hot Chocolate Alternatives for Winter Lounging

1. Hot Toddy

The Hot Toddy is the quintessential winter cocktail. Infused with lemon juice, bourbon, and honey, it was also an old-school remedy for relief from a bad cold. Tart and sweet, bright citrus is the perfect compliment to rich, smoky bourbon. You don’t need to be ill to enjoy this drink on a cold winter’s night.

2. Chai Tea

Chai Tea has the creaminess of hot chocolate that you love, but with an extra kick from cinnamon, fresh ginger, cardamom, peppercorn, and anise. The spicy aroma alone would be enough to warm you up on the coldest of winter days.

3. Hot Buttered Rum

Hot Buttered Rum is another beverage made with warm spices such as orange zest, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. The spices are used with brown sugar to flavor the — you guessed it! — hot butter that is blended into the drink. The brown sugar and bright orange zest enhance the deep flavor of the rum in this sweet treat.

4. Hot Mulled Cranberry Cider

When you think of drinks to enjoy in cold weather, on your couch, in fuzzy slippers — cider is right up there with hot chocolate. The cranberry cocktail in this recipe adds a tangy twist to the classic. It’s the perfect drink if you’re in the mood for something warm and sweet with a little bite.

5. Mexican Hot Chocolate

If you’re in need of some heat, look no further than Mexican Hot Chocolate. Chocolate and crushed chiles or smoky cayenne go surprisingly well together. Add vanilla and cinnamon and this drink becomes a decadent treat. We doubt you’ll make hot chocolate any other way after trying this recipe.

Moroccan Mint Tea in Your Pajamas

When made with fresh herbs, mint tea soothes upset stomachs — even heartburn! — and promotes healthy digestion.

6. Moroccan Mint Tea

Detoxing after the holidays? Freshly brewed Moroccan Mint Tea is a light and sweet hot cocoa alternative. When made with fresh herbs, mint tea soothes upset stomachs — even heartburn! — and promotes healthy digestion. The perfect remedy after an overindulgent feast or a long week of late-night takeout.

Check out the recipe on epicurious.com.

7. Tom and Jerry

A clear indicator that a cocktail is from the 1920s is the presence of eggs. Like the classic Egg Cream, the ‘Tom and Jerry’ is made with fluffy beaten egg whites. Brandy, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice are what make this cocktail “Christmas in a glass.” It is considered a classic Christmas cocktail throughout much of the midwest today. You might want to pull out your favorite footies for this one.

Get the adult recipe on tablespoon.com.

For the non-alcoholic version, replace the brandy, rum, or whiskey with hot cider or freshly brewed cinnamon tea.

8. White Hot Chocolate

White chocolate is an acquired taste, but is more popular in the United States than anywhere else in the world. In fact, the U.S. consumes more white chocolate than all other countries combined! Whether you’re a fan or not, you’ll love this warm creamy drink made with vanilla and quality white chocolate.

Still Hibernating

By Ellie Badanes, The Pajama Company Editor

It’s officially Spring but here at The Pajama Company, we’re still hibernating. We have cute new Spring Pajamas in stock but with snow still lingering in CT, we’re staying cozy in flannels and snuggle socks. We want to believe Spring is nearly here, we want to buy pots of flowers for the patio and bask in the sunshine. We dream of capri pj’s with flip flops but with temperatures in the 30’s, it’s easier to just stay in and hibernate.

We know hibernation is a survival strategy. Animals hibernate as a way to conserve energy when conditions are harsh. Our pajamas make hibernating pretty easy we have to admit. With fun prints and cozy fabrics, pajamas promote hibernating, even when the sun is shining and temperatures are soaring. What better way to rejuvenate than to curl up in your favorite place with that book you’ve been meaning to finish, that gossip magazine you love or with an eye mask for some much needed shuteye. Did you know that a “Catnap” can promote creativity, improve memory and alertness? We might just hibernate another day or two.
