If you are looking for something warm to drink instead of hot cocoa, try a cup of sbiten! Sbiten is a traditional Russian drink made from honey, water, tropical spices, and jam. The ingredients are often boiled together and served like tea or hot cider. For hundreds of years people have believed that sbiten will not only keep you warm during a cold winter, it will also keep you happy.
