Yes, it's winter. Yes, it was 80 degrees on Christmas. Yes, there was a 40 degree swing in the span of three hours last week. All of this adds up to one thing: You're probably going to have a sniffle pretty soon. The remedy? We're no doctor, but we don't mind steaming it out with warm drinks. Thanks to Woolworth, we have another fantastic warm drink to help us out.

Their take on a toddy is simple enough to make if you can track down chai cider, but why even try?

(After all, we hear it's going to get down to a bone chilling 40 degrees tonight. Insert eye rolling emoji here.)
