You know I’m all about capturing that warm and cozy feeling that comes with the season.  So the second I heard “red wine hot chocolate” breathed in the same sentence, I knew I had to try it.  I mean red wine and chocolate, it’s a no-brainer perfect pairing.  And is it just me, or is this the year for crazy inventive cocktail; remember the rose slushy and our boozy apple cider slushies?!  

Anyway, back to our Red Wine Hot Chocolate.  Of course, you really just had me at “wine” (find my top 12 under $30), but you also had my curiosity piqued with the thought of mixing any kind of vino with ooey-gooey dark chocolate and marshmallows.  So with that, I got down to business and began taste-testing, and quickly found out just how much of an indulgence this seasonal cocktail was. 

See, naturally, red wine hot chocolate is rich.  So this isn’t the kind of cocktail recipe to pull out for a batch drink at your holiday party.  It is, however, an exemplary dessert drink.  Or a get-cozy-in-front-of-a-fire-and-read-a-book drink.  Plus a bonus: it smells absolutely heavenly when you’re making it.

With my recipe, I kept it simple by using a full-bodied, flavorful cabernet sauvignon (high price point Silver Oak low price point Ravenswood Vintner’s Blend) …save your favorite pinot noir for dinner tonight. The only other ingredients you’ll need: milk, dark chocolate chips or flakes, and marshmallows of course.  It’s seriously that simple to whip up.  Find the full recipe below, but tell me: will you be cozying up with a mug of red wine hot chocolate this season?!  Truly, MKR
