Until January 4, 2020, the terraces at the the five-star London will be transformed into a chocolate wonderland with décor and bespoke chocolate bars, paired with cocktails.

Taking inspiration from a Christmas selection box, the Chocolate Box Winter Terrace offers five chocolate bars, crafted using Lanlard’s recipes for the hotel. The chocolate bars and cocktail pairings include:
 
•       The Christmas Delight, a milk chocolate bar with a fruity tanginess with a hazelnut praline feuiletine filling paired with an eggnog cocktail and served in a festive bauble with a candy-cane straw
•       The Winter Rose, a white chocolate shell encasing a cardamom ganache and pistachio praline bar paired with a non-alcoholic creamy cocktail created with notes of rose and cinnamon
•       The Sweet & Spicy, a 65% cacao dark chocolate bar with a refreshing spearmint fondant layer with red marbling, to be paired with a warm rum-based cocktail. Served in a glass teapot for two, the cocktail is made with sweet honey and garnished with dry orange drawing out the minty twang in the chocolate 
•       Copper Chokoreto, an Andoa organic milk chocolate bar with a Japanese yuzu ganache centre , paired with a gin based cocktail with a strong citrus taste
•       The Stag, a dark chocolate casing surrounding a buttery salted toffee centre bar, is to go with a Dalmore whisky-based cocktail with hints of coffee and spice 

In addition to the limited edition Chocolate Box menu, the terraces will be have festive lights decorations, from polar bears handcrafted out of willow at the hotel’s entrance, to bespoke mini chalets for couples and friends.
