Host the Perfect Summer Pool & Garden Party, Courtesy of Riverbend Sandler Pools

Summer Garden Pool Party

A Texas summer pool & garden party will always go down as being one of the season’s most memorable affairs. The fresh air, the open space and the lush setting creates a natural and relaxed atmosphere, something which does not come so easily for indoor events.

A Plano pool & garden party can range from a simple get-together to an elaborate affair. No matter what the reason for your celebration, a well landscaped Riverbend Sandler backyard is the perfect setting for your next summer pool & garden party.

Nothing says Christmas in a cup like a mug of gingerbread hot cocoa.  As Erika, the creator of this sumptuous beverage who runs the blog The Hopeless Housewife says, this drink is like “drinking a chocolate gingerbread cookie.”

Creamy, chocolatey, and absolutely decadent, this is the perfect drink to warm up with while curled up under a blanket by the fireplace on a cold wintry night.  Treat your friends and family to something new and delicious this holiday season, and give this recipe a try!

Servings:

4 servings

Preparation and Cook Time:

8 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 C milk (any kind)
  • ½ C cocoa powder
  • ¼ C brown sugar
  • ¼ C white sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • Whipped cream

How to Make Gingerbread Hot Cocoa

  1.   Heat milk in a medium saucepan over low heat.
