There are few beverages as complete as a good hot chocolate.
A drink, a dessert and a hug, all rolled into one, an enormous mug of molten chocolate is one of the best things about the slow trudge into darkest winter.
Now one Cork coffee shop has gone a step further, turning their festive hot chocolate into a Christmas spectacular that’s worth making a trip to the city for.
Union Grind on Union Quay is now serving a Reindeer Hot Chocolate and, to be honest, it’s probably the best thing about winter 2019.
It works like this; a chocolate reindeer is placed into a cup before steamed chocolate milk is poured on top. The rapidly melting reindeer is then filled with marshmallows and topped with fresh cream before serving.

Union Grind will be serving the Reindeer Hot Chocolate from 9am until 4pm, Friday to Saturday, from now until Christmas.
