When winter strikes, we’re all about comfort in a cup.
Whether we’re heading out for evening drinks with friends or waking up on a cool Brissy morning, the vibe is always something warm, cosy and comforting.
Don’t get us wrong... we’re not just talking about piping hot cups of decadent hot chocolate. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite seasonal brews, featuring everything from aged rum and Italian red wine to sweet Nutella hot chocolate and traditional Turkish tea.
Ice Dream, Nutella Hot Chocolate – It may be a little cool for ice cream (personally, we eat it all year round), but that won’t stop Ice Dream from serving up the most decadent specials. We assure you, their indulgent Nutella hot chocolate - topped with lashings of whipped cream and chocolate drizzle - is the answer to all of your winter prayers.
Max Brenner, Milk Chocolate Mocha – What’s better than a hot coffee on a cold day... ? A hot coffee infused with melted, Belgian milk chocolate of course! Trust us when we say that the mocha from Max Brenner is out of this world.
Denim Co., Peanut Butter Italian Hot Chocolate – Our two favourite flavours have come together in one delicious, warming beverage and we are officially OBSESSED! A thick, rich, peanuty cup of goodness, you need to try this this winter...
Barbossa, Rum Tasting Paddle – Warm yourself from the inside out with one of Barbossa’s premium tasting paddles! The perfect opportunity to sip and sample a few of their finest rums, take your pick of three flavours...
OTTO, Italian Reds – It wouldn’t be an evening of fine dining at OTTO without a beautiful bottle of Italian red wine. A warming accompaniment to any pasta or main, you’ll be in awe of their extensive wine list.
Espresso Garage, Barista Made Coffee – Cold winter mornings call for warm cups of coffee from Espresso Garage! The ideal spot for that morning caffeine hit, get your fix from 6am daily.
Ahmet’s, Turkish Tea – What better way to finish a feast than with a warming cup of Turkish tea at Ahmet’s. Serving a variety of authentic blends, from their smoky loose-leaf black tea to a sweet and tangy apple tea, they’ve got something for everyone!
Viet De Lites, Vietnamese Coffee – If you haven’t tried Vietnamese coffee, you are seriously missing out! Rich and flavourful, yet beautifully sweet, it’s the perfect end to any meal.
Vici, Affogato – Fellow affogato lovers, put your hands up! We’re convinced that all good Italian feasts (especially in winter) should end with a sweet little affogato. What could be better than hot espresso poured over creamy ice cream?
The Charming Squire, Ron Zapaca – If you love rum, you need to try the Ron Zapaca from The Charming Squire STAT! A blend of aged rums served neat with a chaser of Ginger Beer (you read correctly), this pairing is a big vibe this winter.
