Irish Hot Chocolate
Grab the following. This is for 2 mugs, but remember you can scale this up:
- 3 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips,or chopped chocolate, or spicy chocolate/Ibarra
- 3 oz. Irish cream, divided, or use Peppermint Scnhapps. Or Both.
- Toasted marshmallows
Use a whisk to add your chocolate ingredients to warm milk on the stove. Your friends can watch you whisk, and watch you ne ne. Once it’s all hot and rich, pour into mugs and add your booze and marshmallows. So good!
Mulled Red Wine
This sounds super old school, GOT/Thor, but this is really good on a cold night! This makes 4 mugs.
- 1 bottle red wine
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 orange, cut into 4 wedges
- 2-inch piece of ginger, sliced
- 4 pods star of anise
- 1 tablespoon whole cloves
Basically just throw this all into a pot and let it simmer for around 30-45 minutes. Add other flavors that you like and make that sh*t your own. Give it a name, Get famous.
Whiskey Spiked Chai Hot Toddy
WTF is a Hot Toddy? WTF is a Toddy at any temperature? Who cares about the name, these are great if whiskey is your drink of choice. They’re also great if you’re feeling sick. This is for 2 mugs.
- 3 cups water
- 1 tag chai spiced black tea
- 2 tablespoons honey, divided
- 3 oz. whiskey, divided
- 1 small lemon, cut into slices
This is another one you can add other flavors to. Basically steep tea, add honey, add booze. Dunzo.
