Despite trying to behave in the safety of November, everyone knows over the next few days any hope we once had of avoiding indulgence will swiftly evaporate into Winter's sky.
So, what better way to acknowledge the festive season than to combine two of its most celebrated assets in one soul-soothing beverage?
Cue: Boozy Hot Chocolate! To mark the Christmas season, a number of Dublin’s top bars have added a spruced-up version of everyone’s favourite sweet drink to their cocktail menus.
Zozimus on Anne’s Lane has merged “a generous amount of golden rum” with “warm luxurious chocolate milk”, vanilla ice cream and crushed biscuit to create their festive offering.
While The Paddocks Bar & Lounge in Clonee has developed a variety of boozy hot chocolates including the toasted marshmallow-topped Baileys edition and the tempting white vanilla infused adult cuppa.
If ever there was a drink to steal our hearts, we think this is it!
