We dare you to try them all:

Across the Board Game Café

Apples to Apples

It’s locally grown and pressed Crampton’s Manitoba Apple Cider, a splash of lemon juice, a cinnamon stick, and an (optional) ounce of Jameson Whiskey — all warmed up to warm you up, garnished with a slice of lemon!


Jasmine Sake Warmer

3oz of warm sake mixed with a touch of brown sugar and lemon juice then topped with our lovely Jasmine tea and garnished with fresh lemon and thyme! (served with a pot of Jasmine tea)


Gingerbread Latte

Rich, dark molasses, ginger, and spices to complement espresso and steamed milk. And, if you have it to-stay, we’ll serve it to you in a mug rimmed with candy cane!


Cake-ology Hot Chocolate

Creamy hot cocoa topped with homemade marshmallows and served with a sampling of hot chocolate fudge… Merry Christmas!

Saddlery on Market

Saddlery Cinnamon Eggnog

Come in and enjoy our festive cocktail. This shaken, creamy RumChata, port and cinnamon-infused-whisky eggnog may be cool to the taste, but it will warm your soul.

Cordova Tapas and Wine

Dark Obsession

As the time for celebration has arrived, we wanted to bring you a taste of Belgium and France by combining two of their specialties: chocolate and wine. This traditional Belgian recipe incorporates both of those complex ingredients to create the perfect Christmas drink to keep you warm all winter long.

Forth Bar

Chilean Fog

This cocktail takes its inspiration from visions of Andean peaks capped in mist. Frothy, semi-sweet and floral. (Pisco Capel, Bergamot, Lemon, Almond Milk, Sugar.)

Forth Café

The Golden Girl

Our warm & spicy turmeric date latte. A blend of fresh ginger, cardamom, turmeric and black pepper; steamed with medjool dates and coconut milk, topped with bee pollen. Soothing, creamy and comforting, with a kick; like all the Golden Girls in one mug.

King + Bannatyne

Maple Ginger Hot Apple Cider

House-Pressed McIntosh + Red Delicious Hot Apple Cider. Spiced with fresh ginger, orange zest, cinnamon + real Canadian maple syrup. Served with or without a shot of Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Rum.

Miss Browns

The Chocolate Tim Murphy

The Chocolate Tim Murphy consists of Detour Espresso, Heritage Hills Irish Whiskey, Cocoa Powder and Steamed Milk, served with a Tim Tam (Aussie Chocolate Biscuit).



A short shot of Dogwood Espresso is whisked into Belgian chocolate, a strawberry cardamom compote, and freshly cracked black pepper. If it wasn’t rich enough, we top it up with steamed half and half cream.

Peg Beer Co.

The Winnipeg Winter Warmer

The Winnipeg Winter Warmer is inspired by long mornings shoveling snow. The bourbon helps warm your bones and gives the hot chocolate a boozy kick while the Belgian Stout syrup creates a gingerbread-like warmth reminding us of other winter treats.


Vietnamese Latte

Our very own limited-edition Vietnamese Latte is kicked up with condensed milk and silky steamed milk with two shots of rich espresso, finished with a layer of foam. This flavourful combo will kick start your morning or afternoon.
