Hot things to do on the Mornington Peninsula this winter

As we dream of warmer weather coming soon, we thought we would share some of the hottest things to try on the Mornington Peninsula this winter. Think hot chocolate, hot food, hot art, hot cider! We know how to warm the senses and we can’t wait to share some ideas with you to plan your next visit this August.

Hot Chocolate Festival

What better way to warm the soul and sweeten your day than with a steaming cup of hot chocolate? At Mornington Peninsula Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, not only do the offer hot chocolate on the menu – they have a hot Chocolate Festival throughout August! Join their team for new and exotic hot chocolate flavours.  Drop into the café to explore one of the eight flavours available throughout the month, each served with an extra shot of hot couverture chocolate plus a handcrafted giant marshmallow. What’s not to love!

Hot Art

At Gordon Studio Glassblowers, heat is the secret ingredient to creativity. A hot glass studio based in Red Hill, this ancient form of art uses molten glass made in the furnace from sand and other ingredients, heated up to 1300 degrees Celsius, to melt into clear glass. The talented family of artists create contemporary and engraved glass, handblown bottles, vases, an animal or two and spectacular indoor and outdoor sculptures using the art glass. Experience the wonder of the mastery unfold from their mezzanine viewing space before you fall in love with one of the glass pieces to take home.

Hot Flavours

This all-day bistro, late night bar exudes sleek charm to locals and visitors alike.  Many Little Bar and Bistro offers guests a Modern Asian – Sri Lankan inspired cuisine based on the traditions of Head Chef, Gayan Pieris’s homeland. A menu that dabbles in hot flavour sensations, this delectable cuisine will take you on a flavour journey you won’t forget.  The team believe in local produce and the menu shows this commitment with produce sourced from owners Sam and Emma’s own estate or from exclusive organic supply partners. Try their Port Hedland scampi, with sambals relish, charred cuttle fish, lunumirisis – experience a hot flavour sensation you will won’t stop dreaming about.

Hot Cider

At Mock Red Hill, stay cosy in winter with their fireplace and hot mulled-cider. This family run business has so much charm, you won’t want to leave.  The Farmgate store and Cider Lounge stands proudly at the front of the property, adjacent to their fifty-year-old apple orchard, first planted in 1895.  Feel the history of the lounge as you settle in, once a packing shed that stored hundred of apple crates has been converted to their welcoming dining space. Relax, settle in, and relish the flavours and service with a friendly smile at this local icon.
