Five drinks to keep you warm as the weather gets frightful
It's that time of year when we're all looking for warm indulgences to combat the winter cold. Thankfully, Rochester has no shortage of such offerings.
While the winter months brings the chills, these comforting dishes will warm the spirits.
Comfort food means different things to different people, but there are some common denominators: As with my attachment to pizza at The Varsity (which I ate with alarming frequency while attending Syracuse University), there is usually a sentimental or nostalgic element to comfort food. It is often described as hearty or warming, both physiologically and emotionally — especially here in the northern latitudes.
For me, the winter months have always been a time for hibernation, not exertion — I swear it's not lazy, it's just being sensible about surviving these long Rochester winters. All due respect to those participating in activities like the Polar Plunge, but I value my warmth and comfort a little too much to risk hypothermia.
While many make the most of the short and chilly days by engaging in winter recreation, frolicking in the freezing snow isn't everyone's cup of tea. But hibernating with Netflix can get a bit depressing.
