Inspired by the recent snowstorm, CincyWhimsy is kicking off Frothy Fridays: a series of posts about the best hot chocolate in Cincinnati. Who can resist a warming up with a steamy cup of decadent cocoa?

While 1215 Vine Street may be better known for their wine bar, the other half of this operation dabbles in hot drinks and caffeinated beverages. On a chilly winter night in Over-The-Rhine, look no further for that comforting cup of cocoa. A creamy milk chocolate blend comes topped with a design created by the barista using milk. Commonly called Latte Art, these fun designs can jazz up a hot chocolate just as well.  It's all about the symmetry of the pour. You know you've had an excellent drink when the leaf design stays put all the way to the last sip.
