5 Hot Chocolates to Keep You Toasty Warm

By Antonia DePace | January 1, 2021 | Food & Drink


The first day of winter has come and gone, and now temperatures are looking brisk. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the sweetest of hot cocoas to keep you warm this winter.

Positano Coast

Vanilla vodka, hot chocolate and nocino liqueur are the ingredients behind Aldo Lamberti’s S’More the Merrier at Positano Coast. The addition of graham crusted marshmallows also doesn’t hurt.

The Love

Add a bit of spice with Aimee Olexy’s Mexican hot chocolate. Steamed with cinnamon mocha and hot chile spice, this drink gives a punch with tequila and mezcal.

Di Bruno Brothers

Head upstairs to the Holiday Market at the Italian market’s Chestnut Street locale for ruby port hot chocolate. What is it? A mixture of their traditional winter drink and Quinta do Infantado Ruby Port.

Oyster House

Steeped with cardamom tea and dark chocolate, this floral hot bevvy is made for adults thanks to bourbon and Nola coffee liqueur. Topped with a pillow of whipped cream and dusted in cocoa powder, it’s the perfect winter warmer.


There’s two new hot chocolates on the menu at Rittenhouse’s favorite Japanese restaurant—and each one has a tasty flare. Order the MaCho for matcha green tea infused with white chocolate and almond milk, or the HoCho: Hojicha tea with cocoa, almond milk and marshmallows. Neither will disappoint.
