There is nothing worse than being cold, and there is nothing better than being warmed by a hot drink.  A hot drink is winter’s most useful accessory.  You can be looking for something rich and decadent, or something jazzy and spiked.  It can make a quiet, solitary Sunday morning feel suddenly instagram-able, or it can be the best excuse to gather friends together and cuddle (and then dance). Either way, there is something inherently satisfying about sipping.  And your cold fingertips will thank you every time.
