5 Simple, Delicious Twists on Hot Chocolate


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:

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together the cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan.

  2. Add the milk and wine, stirring to combine

  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

  4. 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.)
