Christmas Crock-Pot Slow Cooker Drinks
I had no idea just how much buying a Crock-Pot would revolutionise my life. Every busy mother should have one.
Seriously, how mind-blowingly brilliant is it to be able to chuck a bunch of stuff (sometimes I even use a recipe) into the pot, switch it on, then return to it hours later to find it has magically produced dinner?!
So the prospect of being able to create Christmassy drinks using my precious slow cooker is almost overwhelming.
But it turns out, it’s a thing.
You know, the thing where you’ve got a 101 chores to do in the run up to having guests around over the holiday period?
You want to wow them with a delicious Christmas drink other than just serving up the usual wine / Bailey’s / coffee / juice / whatever options.
But you don’t have the headspace, let alone the time
Enter the Crock-Pot and its magical drink making powers.
Slow CookeR Christmas Drinks – What’s Not To Love?!
There are two main types of Christmas drink you can make in the Crock-Pot… warm alcoholic drinks and warm non-alcoholic drinks!
