Wine-Hot Cocoa...there are no words other than this small disclosure:
I am a single mother, to 3 year old and 1 year old girls. As I'm writing this, we are currently in the midst of a blizzard and after playing in the snow, I'm not going to lie...I need a warm beverage just like my girls do. Although I like to jazz mine up, in the adult sense.
No, you cannot use white wine. (It almost looks like it curdles, and tastes very unpleasant, in my humble opinion.) And you'll be using water, not milk, for the 'concentrated hot cocoa'.
Here's how simple this is:
Wine - Hot Cocoa
Following the directions on your hot cocoa mix, make 1/2 cup of normal hot cocoa, except add one EXTRA large scoop (so it's more concentrated),
As one cup red wine, mix, and enjoy. If you want to make sure this is nice and toasty-hot, heat the wine before adding.
VARIATIONS: You can also use hot chai tea, and even hot espresso, I think all are delicious. Vanilla chai tea seems to mix best in terms of tea.
To the wine lovers, the wine-mothers, and to all who enjoy a warm adult beverage; You're welcome from my wine loving heart, to yours.
