All the gingerbread, peppermint, eggnog goodness…

The festive season is almost a formula of sorts. All the elements must come together to create that magic we all know and love, and a vital part of that recipe are festive drinks. We have the hot chocolates and the gingerbread lattes and the eggnogs, and every single one of them feels like a warm, comforting hug – a sprinkle of cheer. In preparation of all the festivities to come ahead, here are all the spots you can drop by to nab a festive drink.

Jones the Grocer

Jones the grocer is coming out with a solid contender – a gingerbread latte. The limited edition drink is available till the end of the year, and flaunts a recipe featuring gingerbread syrup, topped with a dollop of whipped cream, garnished with gingerbread biscuit and including a special touch of honey cake crumble dusted on top. Delicious.
