‘Tis the season to invite everyone over, hang out by the fireplace (or some strategically-placed candles or twinkle lights), and share a cup of good cheer.
Literally. Warm, indulgent drinks are best enjoyed over the holidays with your favorite folks. But if the thought of feverishly whisking a batch of eggnog or peppermint hot chocolate over the stove while your family and friends pile in doesn’t sound like fun, don’t worry—your slow cooker is here to help. (Don't have one? These are the 5 best slow cookers on Amazon.)
Turns out, the miracle vessel does just as good a job at making hot drinks as it does churning out a batch of carnitas or beef stew. (You can also use it to make a ginger cake or cinnamon rolls!) All you have to do is dump your ingredients into the pot pre-party, let them do their thing for a few hours, and jingle bells! You’ve got an insanely impressive drink to hand to your guests the moment they walk in the door.
