Say hello to red wine hot chocolate… your snow day companion

A heavenly combo.

Denise Curtin

Storm Emma is certainly taking over.

We have battened down the hatches and the snow is mounting out the front, so it only calls for one thing. A boozy hot chocolate of course.

Ok, so it might not sound THAT appetising but it’s actually really nice and to be honest, we can’t believe we haven’t thought of this before. It is most certainly our new favourite beverage.

Happy TGIT! ????#greysanatomy #girlsnight #redwinehotchocolate #thisisprobablywine

After continuously seeing it on Instagram, we decided to make it ourselves and it is actually so simple.

Here is the method to follow…

1. Put four teaspoons of sugar, three teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and a pinch of salt into small pot together.

2. Then, stir in three tablespoons of milk, followed by 1/4 cup of red wine.

3. Stir the mixture together and then place the pot on the hob continuously stirring until you bring the mixture to boil.

4. Once you have brought it to boil, pour your mixture into a mug, add a couple marshmallows (if you’re feeling fancy) and you are ready to go. Voilà!

Perfect for the ultimate cozy storm day.
