As the days get shorter and the nights grow colder, the thought of wrapping your hands around a mug of steaming hot chocolate or a glass of excellent mulled wine becomes more and more appealing. At your next winter event, dust off your Crock-Pot and serve your guests these imaginative and truly delicious drinks below. If you need any help pulling off your holiday party, call us here at Event Rentals Unlimited. As a premium Atlanta event rental company, we have everything you need for a successful winter event.
Why Use a Slow Cooker
The magic of the slow cooker lies in its ability to stop time – or at least slow it down enough to allow flavors to rise to the surface and mingle and blend with the other ingredients. A Crock-Pot is the quintessential cooking apparatus for the busy cook – and during the holiday season, all cooks are busy. You simply toss all the ingredients in the pot, turn it on and allow heat and time to work their magic.
You would probably not think of using sweetened condensed milk and coconut milk to make hot chocolate, but when cooked slowly in a Crock-Pot with quality dark unsweetened chocolate, the flavors result in a drink that can only be described as sublime. One sip and you will never settle for powdered hot chocolate from an envelope ever again!
Whip up a home version of this popular cafe concoction that is just as good for half the price. For deep pumpkin flavor, use pureed pumpkin (fresh or from a can). Not only will you have a tasty drink to serve your guests during your party, but your house will also smell divine with hints of cinnamon, cloves and ginger.
Caramel Apple Cider
Winter just wouldn’t be winter without a cup of hot apple cider to warm your tummy. Let the apple juice and cinnamon sticks simmer in the slow cooker for four hours, and mix in a generous portion of caramel sauce right before you serve the drink. The soft creamy texture along with the sweetish-tart flavor will leave your guests asking for more of this amazing concoction.
