Red Wine & Almond Hot Chocolate

‘Tis the season for coziness and what better way to commemorate that than by making warm and magical drinks to fill our bellies!

I have scoured all the internet land to find the BEST, in my opinion, holiday beverages.

First up, I present to you the infamous Red Wine Hot Chocolate. Yep, this beverage is literally our two favorite things combined into one glorious cup.

What You’ll Need for One Serving:

1/3 cup red wine

2 tbs. Cocoa Powder

1 cup milk

1/4 cup chocolate chips

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. ginger

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

 

Directions:

Bring milk to a boil and then lower heat (don’t burn the milk!).

Add all dry ingredients; stir.

Lastly, add wine; stir until ingredients are well blended.

Pour and enjoy!

 

Almond Hot Chocolate

Basically, the recipe is the same. Instead of wine, add an extra 1/3 cup of milk and 2 tbs. of Almond Syrup. If you can’t find this stuff (I got mine at World Market), then use 2 tsp. of pure Almond Extract.

If you want to make this drink naughty, add a little Peppermint Schnapps and viola!

Happy Holidays!

Best,

Ashley
