There’s nothing quite like a warm drink to soothe the soul on a chilly winter day. On the other hand, when you live in the desert, some so-called winter days can still require a cool-down. Surely, we can all agree – no matter the weather, something about a festive concoction during the holidays just feels right!
Lucky for us, Las Vegas is full of wonderful spaces where you can grab a themed creation. Read on to find out more about seven of our favorite venues in town to grab one of these tasty winter drinks!
Bing Cafe prides themselves on their use of top-of-the-line ingredients, delicately combined to craft light and refreshing treats. This holiday season, they’re offering many different hot cocoa combos – the perfect way to warm up on cooler evenings. Cocoa bombs, melted hot chocolate, and toasted marshmallow toppings are only a few of the ways you can satisfy your sweet tooth here. For an extra dose of cute, ask to add a Frozen Bear to your drink of choice!
If massive milkshakes are more your speed, you’ll be more than pleased with what’s on tap at Slater’s 50/50. This winter, you can get your hands on a Peppermint Mocha Milkshake or a Gingerbread Man Cookie Shake. Which one do you think sounds more like a piece of holiday heaven? If you’re more into classic marshmallow-y concoctions during the chillier months, however, you’ll want to try the Ultimate S’more Shake.
Feeling up for a flight? The Holiday Blitz at Founders Coffee is one of the finest, most festive beverage samplers in Las Vegas. This in-house special has a little something for everyone. Drinks include the Spiced Hot Apple Cider, Peppermint Mocha, Mint Latte, and White Chocolate Raspberry Latte. If you’re looking for a simpler cold-weather classic, opt for the Mocha Bomb, a melting sphere of hot chocolate featuring mini marshmallows and a latte pour-over.
For a fun twist on your everyday cuppa, spring for a latte at Coffee Religion. The Winter Solstice is a fresh take on peppermint and chocolate while the Swalty is a rich blend of toffee nut and sea salt. If you have yet to let the autumn go, however, try the Maple Reeves – it’s a delicious fall-inspired latte that has become increasingly popular. Coffee Religion aims to provide a serene and inviting environment for you to enjoy your beverage. It certainly sounds like the perfect spot to both start and reflect upon your day!
Black Tap is another one of Las Vegas’ milkshake havens. Throughout December, a special seasonal treat is available for dine-in and takeout: the Peppermint Classic Shake. Whether you pair it with one of Black Tap’s sensational burgers or prefer to leave room for every last sip, you won’t be sorry for giving one of this venue’s inventive drinks a go.
The Cereal Killerz Kitchen
The Cereal Killerz Kitchen clearly has a focus on…well, you know, cereal. But that doesn’t mean they don’t use each box to craft something new and exciting! For a cozy drink that will remind you of a nice warm fire, fuzzy socks, and late-night storytelling, grab yourself S’more Fire Tingz. Coffee, chocolate, marshmallows, and s’mores cereal come together to make the perfect campfire blend. If you’d prefer a minty caffeine boost, try the Peppermint Mocha Iced Coffee, topped with Elf On The Shelf cereal.
For a memorable hot cocoa experience, you’ll definitely want to stop by Cafe Lola. Their adorable Unicorn Hot Chocolate combines white chocolate, marshmallows, beetroot, milk, whipped cream, and a unicorn cookie to create the ultimate dreamy treat. If you prefer lattes, the 24K Gold Crème Brûlée Latte is sure to show you why it’s one of the most popular items on the menu. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something to cool you down, try the Frozen Hot Chocolate instead.
