The Melt Bar and Grilled featured dessert for December is Peanut Butter Cup Bread Pudding, with homemade chocolate bread pudding served warm and topped with a sweet peanut butter glaze, vanilla ice cream, real whipped cream, powdered sugar and sprinkles.

The featured beer for December is Bell's Winter White, an alternative to dark and heavy winter warmers and stouts. Winter White is a stylish and refreshing wheat ale fermented with a Belgian ale yeast and a blend of barley and wheat malts that yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices.

The Melt Bar and Grilled November cocktail feature is Dude Goes South for the Winter. The Dude needed a Melt twist to his White Russian for the holiday season so we concocted this magical combination of Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka, Patron XO, house-made mexican cocoa milk, cinnamon sugar and a pinch of cayenne pepper.

The new Melt Winter Cocktail menu begins Friday, December 1st and is full of creative new signature cocktails to warm your body and soul during the cold months ahead.
