Drink the Olympics: 5 Winning Hot Drinks from Around the WorldIt wouldn’t be the Winter Olympics without an inordinate amount of snow. Stay warm and cheer on your team with one of these winning hot drinks from around the world.

Glühwein — German mulled wine (often with a shot of aquavit or brandy added) — is a classic during the holidays and after skiing. Ina’s recipe is a hybrid between mulled wine and mulled cider.

Chai masala is an aromatic Indian drink that usually features cinnamon, ginger and other spices. Try Aarti’s classic recipe.

Mexican hot chocolate uses dense, grainy Mexican chocolate that may be best known for its role in mole but makes for a rich, intense beverage as well. Pick up some of the slightly spicy chocolate and make Alex’s easy recipe.

Anijsmelk is a traditional Dutch nightcap that’s often served after ice skating, too. It’s composed of crushed fennel seeds steeped in milk with a splash of honey. If you love licorice, make this your drink.

Yerba mate is a South American tealike drink made by steeping leaves from the mate plant in hot water for a floral, almost grassy brew. No need for a recipe — look for yerba mate tea bags in health food stores or international groceries.
