Naughty or nice, you’ll definitely sip these cocoa cocktails twice


Hot cocoa is a classic winter beverage. If you are looking for more adult beverage option, these cocoa cocktails will definitely make you feel merry and bright.

After a cold, snowy day, hot cocoa can be the way to ward off that chill, but cocoa cocktails can make the season even more merry and bright. While kids might prefer heaping amounts of whipped cream and rich chocolate, adults might prefer a slightly more elevated cocoa cocktail.

Loews Hotels are ready to celebrate the season with some delicious holiday libations. The limited time adult cocoas might have everyone feeling little bit like a kid again. From frozen to hot, these “spiked” cocoas are a tasty way to toast the holidays.

Available now through New Year’s Day, these cocoa cocktails come with a special treat. The adult beverages come with a free kid-friendly cocoa. After all, shouldn’t everyone have a beverage to enjoy?

With properties across the U.S., Loews Hotels wanted to celebrate both the season and their locations. According to Mark Weiss, Senior Vice President, Food & Beverage at Loews Hotels & Co. “Our mixologists draw inspiration from their surroundings, and they’re looking forward to sharing a taste of their destination in a way that’s a bit unexpected and fun for everyone in the family.”

If you happen to be traveling to one of these hotels, cities or even if the hotel is in your own backyard, here are a few cocoa cocktails that will tempt you to make a special visit.
