1. El Submarino
El Submarino is an incredible and interactive way to enjoy your standard everyday hot chocolate drink and is a loved treat for the entire family. El Submarino originally comes from Argentina and is particularly a favourite with children, although has quickly become a favourite with children and adults alike around in the world.
Rather than mixing up hot chocolate, you will warm milk and sweeten it with sugar and vanilla. You’ll also need a quality chocolate bar, which is dunked into the steaming cup and slowly melts away. It’s quite fun and a unique twist on a winter favourite.
2. Non-Alcoholic Eggnog
There are many eggnog recipes available and you can skip the liquor in most to create a family-friendly version. Yet, if you’re looking for a tried and true non-alcoholic recipe, this one is an excellent choice.
This eggnog also takes away the fear of drinking raw eggs, so it’s safe for the whole family. The eggs are lightly cooked with sugar and salt before milk is added. It’s not the quickest eggnog, but it’s a smooth and satisfying alternative for everyone to enjoy.
3. Apple Cider
Apple cider is an unfiltered, unsweetened, non-alcoholic beverage made from apples. Although it has it’s sweet past time, it’s often confused with “cider” or “hard cider” drinks found in the U.K and Canada that more commonly than not, contain alcohol.
Apple Cider itself is a seasonal drink that is often served warm around the holidays starting in autumn and lasting through towards the New Year’s Day celebrations. Apple Cider is available at almost any store and will leave you with a quick Holiday season drink to serve to the whole family without any hassle. Simply purchase apple cider, take it home with you and warm it up, while adding cinnamon and maple syrup to make it a little bit sweeter.
4. White Chocolate Coffee

Whether you try the drink cold or try it hot, it’ll definitely be a family favourite and with just how easy it is to make, you can now have beautiful and yummy holiday drinks at your fingerprints all December long.
5. Peppermint Oreo Milkshake
Another simple, but intricately flavoured milkshake, the peppermint Oreo shake has candy canes, winter Oreos with red filling, and vanilla ice cream to make every child (and big kid!) in your family happy this Christmas. If you bring these to your holiday event, there’s no doubt that you’ll be the favourite in the group. While one of these ingredients – the winter Oreo’s, are a hit or miss with whether they’re available or not, if you can’t find winter Oreos, you can always use red food colouring to make the milkshake a festive pink/red colour.
Simply blend together ice cream, milk, Oreos and a candy cane. Then top it off with whipped cream. What you get after is nothing less than heaven in a cup.
