If you’re throwing a Christmas party and want to impress guests with something a little special, how about a boozy hot chocolate? Check out some super easy recipes and ideas combining alcohol and hot chocolate below!
Event Planner Tip
Go one step further and offer a DIY hot chocolate station!
Give your guests the chance to add their choice of alcohol and toppings to make their own drink with all their favourites. Turn the hot chocolate table into a talking point with a great display of all the alcohol and toppings and we guarantee it’ll become a talking point!
A little advice from us: You might want to consider getting a bartender in to make the drinks if you’ve got a large group and want to keep the station looking good all night!
Casamigos Chocolate Caliente AKA Tequila Hot Chocolate
This is an idea from 400 Rabbits – a tequila and mezcal bar in Nottingham. Pay them a visit and ask them the story behind the name of the bar…
Red Wine Hot Chocolate
Yep, it sounds weird but we’ve been assured that it works! However we’ve also been told to avoid the super easy but not tasty version that is simply cocoa powder, milk and red wine.
There are lots of ways of doing this but this is the version we’ll be trying.
Salted caramel Rum Hot Chocolate
Coconut White Hot Chocolate
Topping: Your combination of whipped cream, dark chocolate powder/chips or toasted coconut flakes.
It’s super simple – Heat the milk gently then stir in the melted chocolate. Add the rum in once everything is mixed and serve.
