‘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
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!
