A sip of hot chocolate can cuddle and warm you up at the same time on a chilly winter day. It’s no more confined to the traditional recipe of cocoa powder and milk as add-ons like hazelnut, Irish coffee flavour and vanilla sauce can make it a different experience each time you have it. Liked by all, a hot chocolate drink is a bestseller, especially in the winters. HT City finds out five joints in the city where you can relish a hot cup of chocolate drink with an equally good ambience to unwind.

Chokola, Khan market (1)

Each of the six varieties of the single origin chocolates here are characterised by a strong and distinct taste and get along with the name of the outlet very well. Saothome, a mix of 70% cocoa with a subtle herbal aroma is a dark chocolate drink which is a bestseller here. Arriba, with only 30% cocoa and a hint of cinnamon is the second most sought after hot chocolate at this joint. The other varieties include Italian with espresso, Viennese with cinnamon, Aztec with piquant and Hazelnut.

One Cafe Bar, Saket (2)

The hot chocolate here comes as a bitter-sweet creamy delight that would satiate the taste glands just at the right places. It has oodles of whipped cream with chocolate flakes sprinkled over it. A steaming cup of thick chocolate drink, with the basic homemade taste, gives this drink a fine balance of cocoa and milk content, making it a ‘drink for all’. Offering a complete winter warming effect, hop onto to this one while you relax on the colourful couches.

Those who get chocolate-high, don’t try this one! Chocolate powder finely blended with milk, cream and loads of chocolate syrup, makes this drink a must have for chocolate lovers. They only offer a basic cup of hot chocolate and leave it to their customers to modify it according to their choice. Options like hazelnut flavour, chocolate chips and whipped cream are available here. ‘Ladies drink’ as they call it, is a hot favourite among women catching up on a classic novel.

Cafe Mocha, GK - 1 (4)

Half a bar of premium Lindt chocolate melted in steamed milk and topped with whipped cream sums up to the Lindt hot chocolate drink served here. The way it’s served is as interesting as its ingredients, as the drink comes in a ceramic tumbler neatly placed over a candle holder, just to keep it warm till you slurp till the last sip. Other flavours available are 60.4% Ghana dark, 70% Amedei dark bitter, French Vanilla, Belgian Chocolate and the Ultimate hot chocolate drink, called the ‘Classic Mocha’.
