February - Red Wine Hot Chocolate
Chocolate and wine are a match made in heaven, so why not put chocolate into wine? It makes for a rich, creamy, and delicious drink that will warm you right up. This decadent drink is perfect for sharing with your best friends, family, or of course your valentine! It also pairs great with Valentine's Day treats like cookies or more chocolate! You can never have too much chocolate. Our choice of red is the Fork & Spoon Cabernet Merlot, fruit forward, notes of chocolate, and inexpensive; it's a perfect wine for mixing into this recipe.
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup red wine
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks
In a saucepan over medium heat combine milk and chocolate chunks. Whisking constantly until chocolate is melted into the milk and is thick and creamy. Pour in red wine and heat until everything is hot. Pour into 2 mugs or 6-8 smaller glasses. Optional: top with whipped cream, sprinkles, chocolate shavings, etc.
Note: For a dairy-free option, almond milk works great in this recipe! And use coconut whip cream to garnish.
Please drink responsibly
