Winter can be a hard one to navigate when it comes to drinks. Gone are the carefree days of enjoying tropical fruity concoctions, because we need something which will warm us up, and warm us up fast. Here our top picks that will (almost!) have you wishing it was winter all year round…
Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate, Denim Co.
If you need convincing on this one, then we feel sorry for you because you obviously have not discovered the heaven-on-earth that is Peanut Butter. This one from Denim combines lashings of the delicious peanut butter with creamy chocolate to create a balanced drink that feels like you’re on the receiving end of a warm hug.
Espresso Martini, Sangria Bar
Ah, espresso martini’s – the dark horse of the cocktail world. This one from Ole is the perfect accompaniment to the harsh pre-winter chills. Not only does it provide you with that whole dark and mysterious allure as you drink it, but will also provide you with a much needed ‘kick-start,’ courtesy of the caffeine hit so you can enjoy the night ahead.
Turkish Apple Tea, Ahmet’s
We don’t know the exact person who first brought Turkish apple tea to the shores of Australia but boy, are we glad they did. Nothing is sweeter in winter than this. Our tip? Enjoy on a lazy grey afternoon with a side of their fragrant Turkish delight sprinkled with rose petals.
Italian Thick Hot Chocolate, Max Brenner
When it comes to creamy hot chocolates, we can’t go past an Italian Hot Chocolate at Max Brenner. Whether it’s white, milk or dark chocolate that does it for you, they have it all. Did we mention there’s an option to add toasty marshmallows? This is too good to be true…
Dirty Chai, Main Street Market
Chai latte and coffee? The ultimate combination! Trust us, we’ve done the hard work at Main Street Market and can absolutely guarantee it. Sit back, relax, and sip on this decedent cup of goodness as you people-watch the afternoon away.
