It's been unseasonably cold in the Phoenix area recently, giving many in the Valley a small taste of how others around the country live (they use heaters?!).

While we Phoenicians may be tough in the triple-digit heat, when the mercury dips around half that, it's fair to say we get a little wimpy.

A nice warm drink can help fix such ills.

Here are four caffeine-free, four caffeinated and four alcoholic drinks to help you through the winter. It just so happens to add up to 12, which is a number we quite like around these parts.
