All YOU have to do is come in from the cold, enjoy the comfort of one of these exclusive beverages then vote for your favourite one! Check out the full list below!
Acorn Café at Generation Green: Blue Christmas
Get through the stress of the holidays and take a much deserved break! We blended Blue Majik — a spirulina extract packed with nutrients — and Reishi mushroom — to boost your immune system and reduce stress and fatigue — and topped it with coconut whip, edible glitter, and a candy cane. It’s like drinking a peppermint cloud!
Amsterdam Tea Room: Sticky Toffee Pudding
Steamed milk mixed with Famous Grouse Scotch, whisky-soaked dates, and notes of burnt caramel, finished with a sprinkle of Maldon salt. Dessert anyone?
Across The Board Games Café: Prairie Orchard
The perfect blend of steamed apple cider, chai tea, and a kick of spiced rum, finished with notes of cinnamon syrup and bitters. It’ll leave you feeling warm and cozy inside.
Blufish: Not Your Aunt’s Hot Toddy
A hot cup of jasmine tea blended with Iwai Japanese whiskey and butterscotch liquor, dashes of bitters and lemon juice and the sweetness of honey. Topped with cinnamon and a full lemon wheel.
Bronuts: Bah Humbug
A rich blend of dark chocolate and cinnamon mocha, topped with heavenly whipped cream and finished with a brûlée doughnut hole. Ebenezer Scrooge-approved.
Forth Bar: Hot Commodity
Our house-made hot chocolate (featuring a kick of cayenne and chilli powder!) with a perfect balance of Montelobos Mezcal and Licor 43, a pinch of salt, and a hint of orange zest.
Forth Café: Honey Bourbon Latté
We took the classic latte to the next level, mixing espresso and steamed milk with our house-made blend of honey, bourbon, cardamom, and cinnamon.
Joe and Lily: Honey Ginger Green Tea Latté
The Honey Ginger Green Tea Latte is the cure for what ails ya. Organic green tea is blended with our homemade ginger-infused honey and topped with frothed milk (dairy, almond or oat available) and a Tall Grass Prairie lemon cookie.
Nonsuch Brewery: Smoked Apple Old Ale X
Our Old Ale X you already love, perfectly balanced with flavours of smoked apples and notes of ginger, cinnamon, and sugar.
Parlour Coffee: Dr Parlour
We’ve blended steamed milk, espresso, and our own “Dr Pepper” syrup to bring you our take on the Dr Pepper Latté. All 23 flavours of Dr Pepper not included.
Patent 5: Patent 5 Irish Coffee
A perfect blend of coffee, Patent 5 vodka, and our house allspice syrup, finished with a smooth semi-whipped cream.
Peasant Cookery: Mulled Wine
Our take on a Christmas classic, a red wine perfectly paired with mulled spices and citrus notes.
