Warm and Wonderful Slow Cooker Drinks

Steaming Pomegranate-Ginger Tea
There's nothing hot-and-cold about these warm winter drinks -- fill your slow cooker with any one of these recipes to feel warm and wonderful on a chilly day.

Bourbon Citrus Sipper

Apple cider makes a smooth transition into adulthood thanks to a rich splash of bourbon. Paired with zesty citrus and spicy cinnamon, this sipper will warm you all the way to your toes.

Lemonade Cider with Ginger Swizzle Sticks

Lemon and apple make a happy couple in this cool take on cider. Make it kid-friendly or adult-only (thanks, brandy!) -- either way, every soothing sip is bound to please.

Splatter Paint Cocoa

No marshmallows needed here. Dress your next mug of hot cocoa in haphazard squeezes of sweet ice cream topping -- hot fudge, silky caramel, or both! A spoonful of peanut butter makes the cocoa extra creamy.

Cinnamon-Pumpkin Toddy

This wonderfully rich drink combines real pumpkin with sugary maple syrup. A warming cup of rye whiskey and a half-cup of schnapps make this recipe adults-only. Add a dollop of Cinnamon Whipped Cream to top it all off.

Silky Raspberry Hot Chocolate

Hot cocoa gets a little fruity thanks to some sweet spiking. Choose liqueur or simple syrup to flavor yours. One warm sip and you'll wonder why you didn't think of it sooner!

Warm up with this classic cold-weather drink. We show you the best boil to get a steamy, delicious cup of homemade hot chocolate.

Stove-Top Hot Chocolate

No slow cooker necessary to make this silky-smooth drink. Learn the trick to acheiving the perfect hot chocolate consistency the old-fashioned way.

Mulled Cranberry Punch

This ruby-red drink is brimming with the warm flavors of cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. A sweet sugared rim and fresh orange zest give the drink its dazzling finish.

Slow Cooker Spiced Green Tea

Cozy on up with a steamy cup of tea. Our slow-cooked green tea version features cinnamon, ginger, and a sunny splash of peach-mango juice.

Scarlet Wine Punch

Dry white wine spritzed with tart cranberry juice gets its sweet side from brown sugar. A stick of cinnamon warms up the flavor, and a decadent cranberry garnish ties it all together.

White Hot Chocolate

White chocolate is a pretty alternative to an old favorite. Add the ingredients to your slow cooker, and sit back as the sweet aroma of vanilla bean and cardamom fills your home.

Simmered Tropical Sipper

You'll be raising your glass to this fruity, slightly fizzy drink that is both warming and refreshing -- even without the optional splash of dark rum.

Horchata Latte

Almond milk and espresso powder combine for this cozy slow cooker drink. Using the water from slow-cooked long grain rice adds flavor and texture you've been missing in lattes all along.

Citrus Cider

Put a citrusy spin on apple cider with a combination of fresh-squeezed lemon and orange juice. Then steep a bag full of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves to add a warm-spice undertone.

Mulled Riesling Punch

This golden punch gets its pretty hue from a combination of Riesling, honey, and brandy. The only thing richer than its color is its taste!

Aztec Hot Chocolate

A dash of chile pepper gives this hot chocolate a kick. Espresso powder and cinnamon add another dimension to this slow cooker drink recipe that's the perfect way to warm up on a cold day.

Chamomile Toddies

A bright blend of spirits, spices, and chamomile tea, this drink takes only a handful of ingredients to make. Rub the rim of the glass with a lemon garnish to add a little zest to each sip.

Pomegranate Ginger Tea

The dry red wine in this recipe makes it a perfect aperitif -- a premeal drink to stimulate the appetite. Pomegranate juice provides antioxidants, while fresh ginger and a cinnamon stick add distinct flavor to this herbal mix.
