Switzerland is the land of chocolate after all, so a steaming mug of hot chocolate should be on your list. Hot Chocolate is also popularly known as Heisse Schoggi or Heisse Schokolade and it can be served a few different ways.

You can pick your favourite pre-made chocolate powder like the famous Cadbury Hot Chocolate Drink, Cadbury Cocoa Powder and for a more malty drink go for Ovaltine. Mix your chocolate powder with steaming hot milk and voila! You are ready to sip onto a soul satisfying, warm chocolatey drink. This can be your go-to drink these rainy days and will certainly keep the kids happy as well.

Expert tip: Add a generous helping of whipped cream or heavy cream on the side.

  • Cranberry Mule5 Swiss drinks

While you celebrate your Friday evening indoors with your family, do not forget the cocktails! Switzerland’s seasonal twist on a Moscow Mule is sure to be your new favourite while you chit-chat your way into the weekend.

Get crafty with ice cubes and garnishes. Make ice in a tray and place a fresh cranberry into each section and freeze. You could pick up a pack of inexpensive cocktail picks and thread a few fresh cranberries on them for garnish or add a sprig of mint along with a lime wedge. If you are looking to cut calories you can substitute diet ginger ale and diet cranberry juice to make it a little lighter.

Moscow Mule is popularly served in copper mugs, but you can use any short glass you have and jazz the presentation. Enjoy with friends and family. Cheers!
