Vancouver’s 2018 Hot Chocolate Festival is back for its 8th run, so get your sweet tooth ready. It starts January 20 and runs until February 14 – which means you have 22 days to try all 35 of the participating ‘chocstars’ at this year’s fest, all of which are local purveyors.

And while we have warm boozy beverages available from tons of places all year round, these four are extra special and must-tries.

Here are four boozy Hot Chocolate Fest drinks that will have you buzzing.
