- 3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 teaspoons sugar
- ⅛ teaspoons salt
- 2-3 Tablespoons milk
- ¼ cup red wine
10 - 20 minutes
Move over, Irish coffee. Hit the road, hot toddy. There’s a new warm, boozy beverage in town, and it’s all you’ll want to sip until summer.
That beverage, dear friends, is red wine hot cocoa. Wrap your hands around a steaming mug of the chocolatey libation and tell me you don’t feel like a million bucks.
While you could always slip some wine into your Swiss Miss, the real deal recipe will be fuller, richer, and all-around better. Here’s how to make it:
Mix together the cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan.
Add the milk and wine, stirring to combine
Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
When the cocoa is your desired temperature, pour into a mug, cuddle up under some cozy blankets, and enjoy.
This recipe serves one, but you may want to double—or triple—it if you’re hoping to share with a friend (or just drink two helpings on your own.)
