RED WINE HOT CHOCOLATE
This red wine hot chocolate is perfect for wine lovers and novices (like me) alike because, while it’s nice and boozy, it’s also well balanced with rich chocolate flavor. You can also adjust the flavors in this hot chocolate to suit your tastes. For sweet and fruity notes, use a fruit wine like blackberry (I love Arbor Mist Blackberry Merlot), raspberry, or strawberry wine. If you prefer drier wines, try a merlot, shiraz, or cabernet sauvignon.
COINTREAU + ORANGE HOT CHOCOLATE
Orange and chocolate are a perfect pairing, especially in this cozy hot chocolate spiked with Cointreau.
From The Cookware Geek
AMARETTO HOT CHOCOLATE
My step-father was Italian, so we almost always had amaretto in the house when I was growing up. Once I was old enough to drink, one of my first go-to drinks was Amaretto Sours. If you like this comforting sweet almond liquor, give this rich and decadent hot chocolate recipe a try!
From Delightful E Made
CINNAMON RUMCHATA HOT CHOCOLATE
Cinnamon Rumchata takes center stage in this warm, comforting hot chocolate. If you can’t find Rumchata with cinnamon, you can just use regular Rumchata and add the cinnamon yourself.
