What We're Drinking: Essential Wintry Hot Beverages

Posted January 2, 2018

From the perfect caffeinated afternoon pick-me-up to a boozy ginger beer cocktail, you can stay warm all winter long with our picks for delicious hot beverages from various Market merchants.

Drinking Chocolate from The Confectional

Good things come in small sizes at The Confectional. And it’s not just cheesecake here! Next time you visit, be sure to try their amazingly rich, decadent Colombian hot drinking chocolate. Add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for a slight spice at the finish. This is an elevated hot chocolate experience to die for!

Ginger Beer Hot Toddies at Rachel's Ginger Beer

Sit, stay and mingle with your friends over hot toddies at Rachel’s Ginger Beer. Made with her signature ginger beer and mixed with whiskey, this will warm you up from the inside out.

Organic Apple Cider at Tiny's Organics

Grab a cup of organic hot cider from Tiny’s Organics. These non-alcoholic ciders are made with no added sugars or sweeteners, and are available in a variety of flavors including traditional, classic spice, cranberry spice, blackberry and rum butter. Yum!

Coffee is an obvious choice—and no better place than the Market to find your perfect cup of Joe.

Cortado at Storyville Coffee

When the weather is dreary and cold, Storyville is the perfect place to cozy up by the fireplace or snag a comfy seat with views overlooking Pike Place. Storyville offers a menu of delicious handcrafted espresso drinks. Not in the mood for another latte? Try the Cortado—espresso cut with steamed milk and served in a Gilbraltar glass. This pairs perfectly with Storyville’s house made marshmallows, too!

Peppermint mochas are a wintry classic! Stop by Local Color for a mugful of minty goodness. While you’re there, you can also browse the rotating collection of art for sale, created by many local artists.
