One of the best things about winter is watching the snow as it falls outside the windows with a warm mug of hot cocoa in your hands. The only thing that could make it better is a little extra merriment in every sip. Boozy Hot Chocolate is a richer and more chocolatey hot cocoa—made with real chocolate—with just a splash of spirits to lift your spirits. For the most creamy Boozy Hot Chocolate, we recommend a cream liqueur, but you'll find that any of your favorite brews blend well with this dessert drink!
Ingredients• 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped • 6 ounces milk, heated • 1 1/2 ounces spirit of choice • mini marshmallows, optional, for garnish
Pour the chopped chocolate into a mug.
Pour the hot milk into the mug and let it stand until the chocolate melts, about 2 minutes.
