Melbourne's icy temperatures have set in for the long haul and every day it's just that little bit harder to drag yourself out of the house. Luckily, one riverside bar is now whipping up the ultimate nostalgic treat, to warm your hands, satisfy your sweet tooth and cure any of those lingering winter blues. Perched just below Federation Square, Riverland has launched a toasty new concoction, which is a grown-up take on the classic hot Milo of your childhood.

The newly hatched Boozy Milo ($15) boasts a belly-warming blend of Havana Club rum, Milo and maple syrup, which is then topped with whipped cream, marshmallows and a sprinkling of chocolate. It's an indulgent, adults-only sip, primed for cosy nights by the Yarra.

And it's not the only winter treat starring on Riverland's drinks list right now. You can also get your mitts on a Hot Apple Pie — teaming Jack Daniels Tennessee Fire with apple, vanilla and cinnamon — and a mulled wine, with the option of adding a slug of brandy, Havana Especial or Tennessee Fire.

You can now find the Boozy Milo at Riverland, 1–9 Federation Wharf, Melbourne. It's open from 11am Monday–Sunday.
