Bourbon Hot Chocolate at Blue Ribbon LES: The 12 Drinks of Christmas

‘Tis the season for holiday drink recipes! For the next twelve days, leading up to Christmas Day, we will be highlighting our favorite drink recipes and the bars and restaurants around the city. Drink up! 

On the seventh day of Christmas…we were obsessed with the Bourbon Hot Chocolate from Blue Ribbon Beer Garden and Sushi Izakaya.

Honestly, there is nothing better than a warm and creamy cup of piping hot chocolate in the winter. It keeps your hands and belly toasty – and the bourbon makes everything even better! Plus, the Blue Ribbon Beer Garden/Sushi Izakaya locations at the Thompson LES are great places to escape the cold (there is a heated patio!) and the Midtown tourist crowds. Plus, this drink comes with a warm, fresh chocolate chip cookie. Yum!

Bourbon Hot Chocolate Drink Recipe
