It’s time for a gilt trip – and I mean that in a good way.
There’s a great reason to get yourself to New York City this holiday season.
For a limited time in November and December, The Dominick Hotel in SoHo will offer complimentary rare gold drinking chocolate in its lobby, provided by Delysia Chocolatier. The drinking chocolate cart experience will feature Gold Drinking Chocolate – more on that in a minute — alongside other varieties such as Pumpkin Spice (starting Thanksgiving weekend Nov 23-26) and Peppermint (Dec 15-18 and 22-25). Travelers, guests, and New Yorkers alike will be able to customize each decadent cup with a variety of toppings from cinnamon and peppermint sticks to a homemade s’mores spice blend.
What is Gold Drinking Chocolate?
Gold Chocolate is the newest couverture creation on the market. Pale amber in color, Gold Chocolate’s natural hue is created from caramelized sugars and caramelized milk fat, providing a unique caramel chocolate taste. Its intense, yet balanced flavor provides a hint of caramelized chocolate, toffee, butter, cream and a dash of chocolate.
Delysia Chocolatier’s Gold drinking chocolate is made with high-quality chocolate that is a luxury in itself. This exceptional beverage gets a glittering shot of opulence courtesy of pure gold chocolate that makes this extravagant beverage as dazzling as it is delicious. The Gold drinking chocolate is intensely rich and flavorful, handcrafted using 72 percent bittersweet chocolate with morsels of gold chocolate dotted throughout the mix.
Delysia Chocolatier, an award-winning artisan chocolate company based in Austin, Texas, is known for its rare gold drinking chocolate. Released to the world in early Spring 2020, Delysia Chocolatier was the very first, and maybe even the only chocolatier on the planet to handcraft confections with Gold chocolate.
As the only independent Five-Diamond property in New York City, The Dominick offers guests luxurious amenities with unobtrusive service at its location on Spring Street in SoHo.
And here’s another great reason to visit the hotel – with wellness tourism at an all-time-high. The property also houses a signature Babor spa. I’ve not experienced it, but Babor luxury skincare is a German company offering superb high-end products and is still a family-run business to this day. Babor has more than 60 years of skincare expertise. All of its research, development and production activities take place exclusively at the company headquarters in Aachen.
So treat your tastebuds – and then treat your skin to German complexion perfection. It’s all a golden opportunity.
