There’s nothing better than a cheeky ‘Winter Warmer’ tipple to put you in the mood for Christmas. Plus it helps warm you to up (but that’s almost secondary…)
Here’s our pick of the most mouth watering Winter Warmers in Belfast.
3 Hill St
The Dirty Onion‘s Hot Whiskey – made with Powers Irish Whiskey, brown sugar, hot water with lemon and cloves.
Perfect for sitting in front of their roaring fire, and even better during their authentic traditional music sessions.
Stay tuned for the Hot Drinks Grotto. Coming soon in December, the snug in the bar will become a seasonal getaway complete with hot ports, warm whiskeys, and hot mulled ciders – made to their very own unique recipe.
2. The Perch
5th Floor, The Gate, 42 Franklin St
Asides from the rather fantastic festive cocktail list – which includes such festive classics as the ‘Winter Spiced Old Fashioned’ and the delicious ‘Winter Flower’ – you can sit back and enjoy one of these scrumptious warming Mulled Ciders for £3.50.
Kriss Kringle Nook, Continental Market
There’s plenty of Gluhwein to choose from at the Christmas Market but the Kriss Kringle Nook helps this stall stand out from the crowd.
Featuring gallons of mulled wine and hot cider, this outstanding stall is a necessary stop-off if you’re wandering the Christmas Continental Market (it’ll help keep your hands warm and spirits merry).
4. Cafe Mauds
555 Lisburn Rd
As featured in our 10 Most Delicious Hot Chocolates In Belfast, if you’re after a chocolate infused Winter Warmer treat, Cafe Maud’s indulgent hot chocolate place is the place for you.
The Minty Mallow gets a ten out of ten from us, with its crushed chocolate Mint Aero the perfect accompaniment to the frothy mint infused beverage complete with Belgian chocolate, cream and frothy marshmallows.
Christmas Continental Market
While not technically a Winter Warmer, we certainly feel the warming effects after a few too many of these…
