If you’re stressed about finals coming up then you’re in good company. But look no further for a fool-proof way to destress and focus on your exams. These beverages are sure to clear your mind to make certain that you earn that A+. 

BEVERAGES TO BEST YOUR AVERAGES: While sipping on these cozy drinks, remain cautious of your time management and then be sure to enjoy your well deserved winter break. (Sophia Ho)

Spike Your Senses Spiced Cider 

To thoroughly wake up the mind, look no further than this spiced cider for a splash of bold flavors. 

This recipe is perfect for when you have hundreds of pages to reach for history and your eyes are going to glaze over if you have to read the words “laissez-faire economics” one more time. 

I’d recommend pouring this drink into a cup that says “It’s Fall Y’all” in order to enjoy the last remnants of fall, or any other favorite mug. 

You can follow the recipe over at Pick Up Limes for the complete details. 

Brain Defog Unclog Eggnog

Winter is just around the corner and if spiced cider feels a little too last month, try some homemade eggnog to unclog your brain of AP Biology notes and prepare you for the most wonderful time of the year.

If you’re looking for the best homemade eggnog of the season, follow the recipe from Food Network’s “Chopped” host Alton Brown (you just know it’s gotta be good if it’s coming from a food critic).

As a secret just between you and me, if you garnish your beverage with whipped cream and cinnamon, you will have the most eggs-cellent drink of winter! 

Chai Clari-tea

If eggnog isn’t your forte, then this tea from Mom’s Kitchen Handbook is the perfect drink for any season with the added warmth of spices. 

This chai is the perfect drink for when you have too many trigonometry identities in your head and can’t separate fact from sin2x + cos2x = 1.

You can enjoy the mixture warmed over the stove or chilled to really clear the mind.

Finals are a stressful time of year, but sipping on these drinks near a roaring fireplace—even if it’s just a YouTube video of a fake fire—is sure to put you in the right mood for the holidays and for acing all of your exams.
