Omni Hotels & Resorts unveiled a new collaboration between two extraordinary like-minded chefs this holiday season. Famed spice master, Lior Lev Sercarz of New York City’s La Boîte and “Chopped: Sweets” winner and Omni Executive Pastry Chef Leen Nunn share the brilliance of their craft with Stirring up Nostalgia, a limited-edition artisanal hot chocolate made with an elevated spice blend and marshmallow confections.

The artisanal menu of must-try spiced hot chocolates are available at all Omni Hotels & Resorts until January 31. The price of a hot chocolate is about $7 and varies per property. Hot chocolate connoisseurs – locals and guests alike – can experience two bespoke recipes that mix premium dark and milk chocolate and myriad “Merry Add-Ons,” including:

- Classic – Omni’s signature blend of cinnamon, clove, and cardamom from Chef Lior, recalling a nostalgic taste of childhood, but with a kick.

- Local – Omni Berkshire Place’s Mocha White Choco, White Hot Chocolate or Espresso, Topped with White Chocolate

- Sweet – Garnished with a gourmet marshmallow, handcrafted, and lovingly molded into the shape of a teddy bear for an extra sweet, whimsical treat.

- Spirited – A special toast to the season with a touch of Baileys, Kahlúa, Crème de Menthe, Peppermint Schnapps, or Dark Rum to make the spirit bright.

- Bright – Omni’s decadent hot chocolate blend paired with fair-trade espresso to create an intense, lingering chocolate experience for true cocoa and coffee lovers alike.
