Hot Chocolate Meets Haute Cuisine
The drink menus of Flame, The Remedy Bar and In Room Dining offer many ways to warm up after a day on the slopes, with options ranging from a cup of mulled apple cider to a snifter of cognac. Another choice, found exclusively at
Deep mahogany in colour and piping hot, a cup of Haute Chocolate stands in stark contrast to Vail’s vast stretches of cold, white powder. Yet it is equally as memorable. The Haute Chocolate arrives in a traditional French hot chocolate pot, presented on a silver tray. Made with Valrhona chocolate and steamed milk, it is churned tableside, allowing you to enjoy the drink at its richest and thickest.
Watch as it’s poured into a cup topped with a dark chocolate lattice and homemade marshmallow. As it all melts, the smooth and elastic texture of the Haute Chocolate becomes creamier. Intensify the experience further with a spoonful or two of chocolate shavings. A snowcap of fresh whipped cream completes the recipe.
Your journey, however, is just beginning, as you breathe in deeply the aromatic delights of the Haute Chocolate. A first sip is followed by contemplation, relaxation and ultimately, pure warmth.
