The cold hit us with a quickness in NYC, so in keeping with the holiday spirit and the newfound chill, we thought that the perfect thing to do for the entire family was to create a hot-cocoa bar.
Everyone likes to personalize their food, so why not personalize your drinks? Prepare mix-ins like crushed up candy canes (we know you've got tons left over), cookie bits, marshmallows, M&M's, and spices. Kids will love adding their favorites and experimenting with new flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice. I'm telling you, add a dash of pumpkin pie spice to your cup and you'll be in heaven. You're welcome.
And hey, why not imbibe while you're indulging? Here's a great recipe for a hot-cocoa cocktail:
Prepare your hot-cocoa of choice with whole milk. (C'mon, we all know it tastes better) You need 1 cup.
Add 1/2 oz of Vanilla Vodka (recipe to create your own below)
Add 1/2 cup of Pinot Noir
Mix together a dash of pumpkin pie spice and sugar in a bowl. Scatter over a tea saucer and rim your glass with the mixture.
