Hot chocolate is the perfect drink this time of year, but how about a hot chocolate cocktail? This is a great adult drink option for upcoming holiday parties…or even just a quiet night at home by the fire or the glow of the Christmas tree. Doesn’t it look delicious?!What’s great about this fun cocktail (aside from the delicious taste) is that it is very easy to make thanks to ChocolatRouge Wine. Yes, that is chocolate and wine!!! I’m not a huge wine drinker, so until recently, I didn’t even know that this sweet dessert chocolate wine existed! But, it’s sold at a number of common retailers (to see exactly where the products are sold, visit ChocolatRouge Wine’s Product locator). I even found a great coupon in-store when I purchased my ChocolatRouge for $1.00 off, so be sure to be on the lookout for coupons this holiday season! Now, honestly, I was a little unsure about this as there are many wines that I just straight up don’t like at all. But, ChocolatRouge had me intrigued – especially the Milk Chocolate wine! And, I’m pleased to say it’s good even all on its own. But, I wanted to spruce up a recipe with it and hot chocolate seemed like such a perfect choice. ChocolatRouge actually features cocktail recipes on their site, so I decided to make my own twist on their Rouge Milkyway. (For two servings) Heat 2 cups of milk (I used 1%), add 4 oz. of ChocolatRouge Milk Chocolate wine, and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder or hot cocoa mix. Stir until well-combined. Pour into glasses or mugs of your choice. Top with whipped cream and add a little dusting of cinnamon. Drink (responsibly) and enjoy! Seriously sooooo good!!!
Have YOU ever had chocolate wine?
