Moxie's hot chocolate
(When I ordered this drink as dessert, the waiter got really excited. He said something like, "Our hot chocolate is the best. You'll see." It really is amazing. I always want to say its like drinking chocolate, which sounds kind of 'duh' but is really quite rare in hot chocolate. It is also very light, not heavy or sticky or creamy, but at the same time is rich. Very good.)
