Spiked Hot Chocolate Recipe

 Spiked Hot Chocolate.Spiked Hot ChocolateOn Sunday we had 82°F and today it may snow in the mountains. After five years in Southern California I can almost feel when it’s going to snow up there. There is a dry crispiness in the air down here and all you want is hot chocolate.Spiked Hot ChocolateI made this one with the Mexican chocolate brand Abuelita, sold all over the States. I had it ready by the time Tomás Eugenio (8), my chocoholic, hot cocoa killer, came from school. To give him “royal treatment”, I served it in a fancy glass cup.Spiked Hot ChocolateMyself, I was so chilly, that that I made a spiked version by adding some Arakú, the superb rum and coffee liqueur and served it with a cinnamon stick. This is a highly recommended hot drink for cold rainy days, combining the best of Mexican chocolate and Venezuelan rum and coffee.

Cheers to my spiked hot chocolate!
