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!

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.
