Raspberry Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate makes for cozy autumn and winter nights, and one way to make it even more cozy is to add booze.


  • milk
  • dark chocolate bar
  • raspberry liqueur

Melt the chocolate in milk over low heat. Divvy it up into mugs, and then add liqueur. Half a shot per mug, probably. You’re adding the alcohol once it’s heated so the alcohol part doesn’t cook off, since the boiling point of ethanol is like 35°F lower than the boiling point of milk, so it might end up merely flavored without you noticing.

Not that you want to heat the milk to boiling – it’ll scald. But whatever: it’s not rocket science, but it is delicious.
