During the holidays, numerous companies and cafes always come out with their own take on “Christmas drinks," and most of them are delicious, too. But then, nothing ever quite measures up to the rich and creamy texture and taste of hot chocolate — the original Christmas drink.

Sure, eggnog is great, or some toffee concoction Starbucks created, but hot chocolate is the “one," because who doesn’t love chocolate! It's perfect for not just the holidays, but for any occasion you might want to indulge or comfort yourself! 

Since we know you’re all going to drink it this season, we thought we could spice things up a little bit by giving you 5 flavours to put in your next cup, for that festive, delicious party in your mouth!

Chili

Warm up your body with some hot chocolate packed with heat! While chili and chocolate may sound gross together because ‘savoury’ and ‘sweet’ aren’t really compatible, don’t worry! The drink won’t taste like chili at all — it will still taste like sweet chocolate, but with a punch at the end, enveloping your tongue with a mild level of spiciness!

Peppermint

A classic flavor that will add a zing of freshness to a classic drink! Peppermint hot chocolate is a timeless combination that is beloved by many (remember Peppermint Patties?) for its sweet, cool tang that deliciously counteracts the warm richness of the chocolate!


Nutella

Who doesn’t love Nutella? Ever since this glorious hazelnut spread hit the market, it’s been collecting fans all over the world. And now it’s here to invade another glorious invention. If you ever feel that your hot chocolate is missing an ingredient, then Nutella will fill that void right up! This will add a soft hazelnut note to your hot chocolate, making it even thicker and more velvety!


Orange

Lovers of citrus-flavoured anything will adore this hot chocolate combination! Be adventurous with your drinks by mixing in orange and chocolate — the orange beautifully complements the sweet cocoa flavour, emphasising it even more for a tasty, cozy drink!


Peanut Butter

Take your hot chocolate to the highest level by mixing it with some smooth (or chunky, depending on your preference) peanut butter for a nutty, sweet and salty celebration in your taste buds! Chocolate and peanut butter always blend well together because of its opposite flavors! So no matter how rich both are, the saltiness of latter will always counter the sweetness of the former!

Nothing says elegant and fresh like a pair of white culottes with a pastel pink top! Since this is a day look, heels aren’t necessary. Keep your feet comfortable with a gorgeous pair of flats instead, and finish off the look with a bold blue satchel!

Romper

The voluminous off-the-shoulder top balances out the flared edges of the pants that amazingly gives a sophisticated finish! Perfect for the day, and when dressed up a little bit with a pair of strappy heels, gorgeous for the night as well.


Shift Dress

Just like the romper, you can never go wrong with a shift dress no matter the occasion. For this special day, though, opt for a red shift dress with colour accents for a simple, no muss-no fuss look! To make it a suitable daytime outfit, wear your best sneakers and a neutral purse! And because shift dresses are so versatile, they can be amped up for a night out by just changing the shoes and purse!


Festive Monochrome

An all-white ensemble for Christmas Day is a young and fresh look that will suit anyone who wears it! Monochrome looks are easy to style because they only require one shade and accessories that will make the outfit pop even more. For this look, you can go for a white top, a white A-line skirt with red details, and white sneakers! Complete the look with a nude or red handbag for that extra oomph in your outfit!
