Hot Chocolate

It may be chilly outside, but hot beverages exist for this very season. Hot beverages are the toasty reward after a trip into the elements. I've got 5 drinks that will put a spark in your heart in Chicago.

1)   Glogg at Simon's Tavern

This traditional Swedish spiced wine tastes just like Christmas, which is a welcome taste in your belly in the lackluster tail end of winter. Not only is this sweet, cinnamon-y wine a toasty, delicious treat, Simon's is a neighborhood staple that takes pride in its Swedish roots.

2)   Clyde May's Hot Cider at The Fountainhead

This Lincoln Square beer haven is cozy and quiet, perfect for a cold winter night. Their apple cider drink with a hint of Clyde May's whiskey will certainly take the edge off of a bitter Chicago day.

3)   Wassail at Longman & Eagle

Longman & Eagle

The Logan Square bar and restaurant is a local favorite because of its creative take on comfort food. They also feature a tasty warm treat each winter called Wassail. The traditional English celebratory drink is sure to brighten even the coolest day.

4)   Hot Chocolate at Angel Food Bakery

This cutesy confectionary is an instant spirit-lifter. The rich and tasty hot chocolate combined with Angel Food's heavenly bakery treats could eventually be responsible for world peace.

5)   Hot Chocolate at Allium

This is Mexican hot chocolate with a twist. As if drinkable chocolate wasn't enough, you get tequila and churros. Three of the best things ever on one plate will make you want to set up winter camp right here. 120 E. Delaware Place
