Yep, it's cold outside. That makes us think about hot drinks. Here are the metro's Top 10 non-alcoholic warm-ups, according to Fat City:

10) Arrowhead Stadium -- Hot Chocolate. There's something about concession-stand hot chocolate: It's the right amount of sweetness and chalkiness that makes you feel like a kid again.

9) Madame Hatter's Tea Room -- Kansas City once had a

dozen little tea rooms like this retro venue in Bonner Springs,

mostly designed for ladies after a weary day of rigorous shopping.

Here, you can have your choice of hot tea, a tasteful little lunch and

a trip back in time all at once.

8) Tea Drops -- China White Peach Hot Tea. A light crisp white tea (by the mug or pot) is basically a hot cup of relaxation.

7) One More Cup -- Satisfy your sweet tooth and get a needed caffeine fix with the Curious George: It mixes a shot of espresso with Shatto chocolate and banana milks.

6) Mildred's Coffeehouse -- Lattes here are the perfect balance of hot milk and coffee for rainy, cold days.


5) Hot Basil The

new Thai restaurant in the Rosana Square Shopping Center serves a

fragrant and soothing cup of jot jasmine tea with a slightly vanilla

top note.

4) Le Fou Frog

-- Chicory Coffee Blend. This signature coffee blend made by The

Roasterie has a hint of chocolate for ending a meal with or without

dessert.

3) Jasper's Restaurant -- We're

pretty sure this is the perfect cup of espresso: elegantly simple, just

as you'd find it in a romantic cafe on the Via Tournabuoni in Florence

(even better with a slice of Strawberry Borghese cake).

2) Weston Red Barn Farm

-- Nothing captures the essence of the brisk, cool days of autumn like

a cup of hot apple cider. This venue serves the beverage through the

first week of November.

1) Christopher Elbow Hot Chocolate -- Liquid gold in a cup.
