January seems to be the month of the hot beverage. We're not complaining though, warm mugs are something to look forward to as winter temps begin to settle in. Read on to discover what fun drink-related holidays are coming up and ideas on how to sip n' celebrate!

January is Hot Tea Month.

Take your pick, on January 14 you can enjoy Afternoon Tea at Belmont Manor & Historic Park or a Chronicles of Narnia themed tea at Elkridge Furnace Inn

Or you could stop by Matcha Time Cafe in Old Ellicott City and sip on one of their hand-selected, internationally award-winning teas. 

January 11 is National Hot Toddy Day.

Why not treat yourself to The Massage Boutique's featured service for the month? The Hot Toddy for the Body is a cinnamon inspired body scrub treatment. 

January 17 is Hot Buttered Rum Day.

Grab a bottle of Lost Ark Distilling Co.'s Lady Anne White Rum and make your own. 

January 18 is National Gourmet Coffee Day.

There are lots of ways to enjoy a cuppa' joe, but if you're looking for more of a coffee shop vibe maybe check out Little French Market, Bonaparte Breads & Cafe, Touche Touchet Bakery & Cafe or Great Sage

January 25 is National Irish Coffee Day.

Grab dinner at any of Howard County's great restaurants (Winter Restaurant Weeks will be going on) and finish your meal with a little something extra. 

January 31 is National Hot Chocolate Day. 

This may be a duplicate from Hot Cocoa Day, but we don't see any issue with that do you?
