We already told you where to get some of the most indulgent hot cocoa in NYC, but there’s a whole other realm of warm chocolate beverages in this city: spiked.

Two E at The Pierre has a pop-up Haute Chocolate menu through January 1st, which offers four mini mugs of their unique flavors– The Mayan, Stolen Moment, Mocha High Dive, A Minty Affair– for $18 or a single mug for $16.

And while the sweet spiked drinks are good, the true allure to this seasonal experience is the holiday ambiance at The Pierre. Request the table in the center of the room, which offers the best views of the festive Christmas tree as well as pastry chef Mike Mignano’s extravagant gingerbread house. Harry Connick Jr. and Bing Crosby tracks will whisk you away into a magical holiday land while you sip your warm drinks.
