As winter sets upon us it is hard to avoid a heart warming cup of hot chocolate, a hot cocktail, a cozy environment, some sweets and only the best can do the trick to brighten up your mood in London’s cold weather!
Our first stop has to be top London Chocolatier Rococo Chocolates at Moxon Street. This location is perfect for those who would like to shop on Bond Street and Marylebone High Street. The Rococo hot chocolate comes in an intense espresso shot and a milky version which will last you your shopping session in the area.
If you fancy a nibble near Bond Street during your festive shopping, the popular London dining venue Drunch offers some delicious healthy treats our favourite being the Peri Peri Chicken accompanied by their delicious fresh juices!
Primrose Bakery will soon start serving some Christmas themed cupcakes. We highly recommend the cinnamon ones. If you happen to be in theatre district, please visit the Covent Garden bakery which is only steps away from One Aldwych.
We recently discovered the Black Magic Hot Cocktail which will be served at the heated winter terraces of the iconic British, Roof Gardens and Babylon Restaurant throughout this winter. Hot cocktails are becoming more and more of a trend in London and with the run up to Christmas this cocktail in London will get you ready for the festive period; a spicy, rich Christmas cakey hot beverage made with Cassis Dijon, apple juice, walnut bitters, Calvados and honey. Nothing can beat a view of London from a rooftop accompanied by a delicious cocktail.
If you are a cigar enthusiast and would like some cognac to accompany your cigar, the iconic London cigar shop Sautter Cigars have opened their latest cozy boutique in Knightsbridge and launched their very own cognac that will be the perfect fit for you this winter. The store managers are super helpful and knowledgeable about cigars and will find you your perfect match. The Knightsbridge boutique has a cosy lounge for you to sit and enjoy your cigar whilst chatting to other cigar lovers!
Before you head out of London we recommend you take away some delicious Cuban coffee back with you by Alma de Cuba (recently launched Nespresso compatible capsules) and refreshing teas in London by Lalani and Co for your friends and family.
One couldn’t ask for a better run up to Christmas this winter in London!
