We Raise Up Our Glasses Against Winter Freezes - Aloha Friday

It's freezing here. Every morning....most mornings I have to get up and thaw the ice off our car so I can take baby boy to school. 

Cold juice and milk have turned to warm tea or milk or hot cocoa for the kids.

What about you? 

1. Do you prefer Cider or Cocoa?
2. Do you make any special drink this time of year for your family?

I prefer cocoa. Dh prefers cider I think. He is the only one who gets it and when I'm at the store and see cider, I think of him, but I don't get it. He also loves cocoa, so that's good :)

2. In my country we make a special drink called Sorrel. You can find the recipe here if you like. 

Dh just got back from a country where the food is bland, so guess what I'm making for dinner? The man needs to be reminded of cajun flavor! :) 
Red beans and rice it is!

I am also joining in with Friday Follow. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love.

  2. Oh I love hot apple cider! So delicious on a cold winter day or night :)

    And I happen to love your blog name. Cute title and perfect fit.

    Happy Friday!

  3. have never had cider...
    except peach cider to marinate our pork chops (really good too, by the way) never drank it though...
    i do love a nice mug of hot chocolate though!
    how funny you are making red beans and rice...
    we are making that for dinner tonight!

    did you ever get my email?

  4. LOVE red beans and rice! Is that Andouille sausage? YUM! And that Sorrel would wash it all down wonderfully.

    Good Lord, I am so hungry. Why did I skip breakfast during our Friday Food Fight?

    Thanks so much for linking up and playing along again this week. :-)

  5. Definitely like cocoa the best, but both are great. I also love egg nog this time of year!

  6. If I can do either sugar-free- I'm in.

    Have a great Friday!

  7. I love cider. Mulled cider is a family tradition, but I also LOVE starbuck's Caramel Apple Cider!

  8. It has to be Cocoa for me. Cider gives me heartburn.

  9. I am following you back!! I hope you have a wonderful Friday!!

  10. Sometimes I like hot cider, and sometimes I like hot cocoa - with lots of marshmallows! :) And there are times I like hot mulled wine... ;)

    Aloha: Shopping

  11. I like hot cocoa best and no I don't make any special drinks

  12. I prefer cocoa and the only special drinks we make are for adults.

  13. Can I come to your house for dinner? Looks yummy!!
    The kids prefer cocoa, Roy likes cocoa with peppermint, I'll take cocoa, wassle, cider, or whatever the flavor of the night is.

  14. I prefer cocoa, haven't had it in forever though. Its warm here, no need... No, we don't have any special drinks.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and linking up, Happy Friday!

  15. I like them both, but I think I prefer good cider. My kids love rich and creamy cocoa made from scratch.

  16. I'm not picky.. I like cocoa or cider... but I really prefer chai. ;-) Any warm drink this time of year is good.

  17. I like cider, but cocoa too. Mostly I drink coffee though. I make cocoa with marshmellows for the kids.

  18. Sorry I'm so late in visiting you, but the internet is acting up, and it's very frustrating.

    I prefer cider over cocoa, since I can't take too much caffeine. We don't make any special drink..

  19. I cocoa much better, and the family only have it once in a great while. Thanks for the reminder, I will pull it out for Christmas.
    And yes, I have been freezing too!
