Warming Winter Beverages

Hot Chocolate – Caribou

If you’re looking for an inexpensive warm winter drink on-the-go, Caribou hot chocolate is the way to go. Super creamy and chocolaty, you can even individualize your hot cocoa by adding different flavors of whipped cream and choose from a variety of chocolate. And while Starbucks may be good for frappucinos and teas, Caribou wins the hot chocolate battle easily.

Cappuccino – The Bachelor Farmer Café

There’s nothing more comforting than the combination of roasted coffee beans covered with a cloud of foamed milk. The Bachelor Farmer Café, a casual extension of the highly successful Bachelor Farmer restaurant in Minneapolis, offers a simple yet gourmet menu that replicates a French style bistro with new American flavors. If you’re looking for a quick burst of energy with a softer taste, the foamy consistency of this aesthetically pleasing beverage will satisfy your cravings. Pair it with a sweet treat from their bakery for the perfect Sunday morning.

Peppermint Tea – Rustica

On a cold winter day, you’re not always looking for a dense winter drink. Instead, you might crave something refreshing yet cozy. At Rustica, you have a choice of loose-leaf teas. My favorite consistently remains their peppermint tea. With all the flavors of the holidays, it’s strong smell and flavor is perfect when you need a pick-me up without the extra-caffeine of a coffee.
