Eclat Chocolates & Philadelphia's Fork Restaurant Offers the Season's Most Tempting Cocktail

PHILADELPHIA, PAFork (306 Market Street, 215-625-9425), one of Philadelphia’s most popular restaurants, has teamed up with chocolatier Chris Curtin’s new decant treat Hot Éclat to create the winter’s most tempting hot cocktail.  Simply named Hot Éclat, this delectable beverage combines Barbancourt rum and Bailey’s Irish cream, steamed with milk to hot, frothy perfection, and is served with a Hot Éclat drinking chocolate wand for drinkers to stir in.

“The first time I tasted Hot Éclat, I knew it would make a spectacular cocktail,” says Fork owner Ellen Yin.  “This grown-up version of hot chocolate is a perfect treat whether you want a decadent dessert or a warm, comforting treat on a cold winter’s night.”

Fork’s Spiked Hot Chocolate is available throughout the restaurant and at the bar for $11, throughout the winter months.  Hot Éclat drinking chocolates – wooden rods tipped with a melt-able morsel of Éclat’s award-winning chocolate, designed to stir into hot milk – are available for purchase at Fork: etc.

Fork is located in Philadelphia’s bustling Old City District.  Old City is the region’s most eclectic mix of one-of-a-kind retailers, restaurants and centers for the arts.  Its village-like vibe makes any stroll more than a shopping trip, but a discovery that satisfies all the senses.  No wonder National Geographic Traveler recently referred to Old City as “arguably the liveliest urban neighborhood between SoHo and South Beach.”

Fork is open for dinner seven nights a week.  Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.  Sunday brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 2:30 pm.  Mid-day and late night menus are also available.
