Delicious warm drinks you can make at home

apartments for rent in Orillia, winter, recipesDuring these chillier months, we’re constantly on the lookout for ways to combat the cold. For a simple and relatively inexpensive remedy, try experimenting with some delicious gourmet drinks that you can make in the comfort of your Orillia apartment. Our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together some scrumptious piping-hot beverages you’ll want to make for the taste and also their warming benefits.


Candy Cane Hot Chocolate

Even though Christmas is over you can still enjoy the taste of a classic holiday candy in this ‘Better Homes and Gardens’s’ Candy Cane Hot Chocolate. Due to the fact that candy canes are now out of season, you can most likely pick them up at a significantly reduced cost. To create this sweet, sugary drink, you’ll need cocoa powder, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, peppermint extract and peppermint candies and a variety of other ingredients. Pick up all the ingredients at Metro located at 70 Front Street North, which is less than a 10-minute drive from the Noble Towers Apartments and the Executive Suites.


Spiced Pomegranate Apple Cider

Imagine the flavours of pomegranate, apple cider, brown sugar and cinnamon all together and you’ve got ‘Good Life Eats’s’ Spiced Pomegranate Apple Cider. This decadent drink adds a unique twist to a traditional drink by adding in the tart, yet sweet characteristics of pomegranates. To create this cider, simply combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan, boil for five minutes, add slices of orange and allow the mixture to simmer for an additional 30 minutes. Located at 975 West Ridge Boulevard, Food Basics has everything you need to create this beverage and is less than a 15-minute drive away from the Orillia apartments.


Chai Tea Latte

Skip the expensive cost of Starbuck’s coffees and lattes by making your own Chai Tea Latte in your apartment. Drop by Zehrs Markets located at 289 Coldwater Road to pick up the tea, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and brown sugar you need to create this delicious drink. The Noble Towers Apartments are a four-minute drive away and the Executive Suites are an 11-minute drive from the store.


Satisfy your cravings for warmth by creating and enjoying one of these drinks in your apartment. Located on 391 Barrie Road and 118 Creighton Street both of Williams and McDaniel’s Orillia apartments are fitting for young professionals and first-time renters who are currently looking for a new home.
