As the leaves are falling during the autumn season, so are the temperatures. One of the best ways to enjoy the cooler weather is with a warm drink in your hand. Fall is a great time to travel to Italy, and fortunately, there are a variety of delicious warm drinks you can order to help appreciate the season. As coffee is a big part of Italian culture, it is a key component to many of the hot drinks Italy has to offer. However, there are a variety of other drinks that are worth trying during your stay. Here are 10 hot drinks to order in Italy this winter.
1. Latte Macchiato.
A cup of steamed milk with espresso poured in makes up this classic coffee drink.
This is a staple drink of Italian culture, made of equal parts of espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam, and it is a great way to start your day.
3. Caffè Normale.
Ordering this shot of espresso throughout the day will provide you with a burst of warmth and energy.
4. Caffé Latte.
This drink is similar to a latte macchiato, but the difference is that the base is espresso, and steamed milk is added in as a supplement.
This drink, popular in Northern Italy, contains the perfect combination of espresso, frothed milk, and cocoa powder.
6. Cioccolotta Calda.
Italy’s version of hot chocolate is something you shouldn’t leave without trying. Thick, rich, and creamy liquid chocolate, served hot with a dollop of cream on top can chase the chill out of any day.
What could be better than espresso mixed with hot chocolate and topped with cool, thick cream? This special drink from Turin will satisfy your need for caffeine and something sweet.
This drink, common near the Alps, is similar to eggnog, made with warmed egg liqueur and brandy and topped with cream and cinnamon.
Whipped and heated egg yolks mixed with sugar and Marsala wine make this drink a sweet treat.
10. Vin Brulé.
This is a warm, mulled red wine simmered with sugar, spices, and fresh pieces of lemon and orange. If you’re looking for a drink to quickly warm you up inside and out, this is the option for you.
With this list of drinks, you can be sure to find something warm to enjoy as you experience all that Italy has to offer, especially as the temperatures drop. ~ Kalina Davis.
