Winter is the perfect season to huddle around the campfire, share the company of your loved ones and enjoy the warmth of hearty comfort food and drinks. It can often drop below 10 degrees in winter so we tend to rely on the warmth of blankets, fire and the food we consume. To avoid tainting the outback experience during these cooler months, we have shared some of our favourite hot drink recipes to keep things lively this winter.
