Favorite Millennial and Baby Boomer Holiday Drinks

Wishing all my readers a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season along with an amazing New Year, which as you are well aware we will have to create ourselves. Suggested servings: 5 or six per day until the impeachment trials begin! There’s power in these drinks as there are in our numbers. ENJOY!red-wine-and-hot-chocolate

Red Wine Hot Chocolate

Serves 8

5 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 quart (4 cups) whole milk
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups fruity red wine, such as Merlot, Shiraz, or Zinfandel
Cinnamon sticks and additional cocoa powder, for serving (optional)

Whisk the chocolate, cocoa powder, sugar, and cinnamon together in a large saucepan. Add the milk and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until hot and smooth, about 5 minutes. Stir in the salt.

Remove from the heat and add the wine. Divide among 8 small glasses or mugs, garnish with a cinnamon stick and a dusting of cocoa powder, if desired, and serve.

You can just do what I do and that is buy it in the milk section of your favorite grocer and add bourbon or rum. Either way Enjoy!
