Adding to this thought, here is a list of six beverages that will keep nice and toasty all winter long:
1. Hot Buttered Rum:
Having just rum on a grey day is passé. Why not treat yourself to something twistier? This frothy (and yummy) beverage dates back to the Colonial era. Its main ingredients are soul-soothing rum (of your choice) heated up with a perfect mix of sugar and butter.
2. Hot Water & Lemon Infusion:
This concoction has real benefits. It is anti-inflammatory and contains antioxidant attributes of turmeric. On top of it, this drink is easy to prepare. If your winter diet for men includes flushing out toxins from liver and kidneys, then this drink will give flawless results.

Ah! This option is forever welcome. Ginger, cinnamon or saffron—there are so many ways to make that perfect cup of tea. As an Indian, you can’t help but include this in the top winter beverages of all time! But don’t forget to cut down on sugar.

The best thing about these healthy beverages is that even though they are so different from each other (different ingredients and tastes) they offer the same thing to everyone and that is lots of happiness! So pick one or choose all—the choice is yours!
