UMPH Your Hot Chocolate!

Now that the 2009 wedding season is over, I'm finally getting into the holiday spirit! This is the time of year that you want to bundle up on the sofa, be with family, watch a little TV and chase it with a good cocktail. So instead of your typical "warming" hot chocolate, I've shared a hot chocolate recipe with a little UMPH and it's RED! Enjoy!!!
(borrowed from

1 oz. Campari
2 oz. Brandy
3 oz. Milk
0.5 oz. (optional) Heavy Cream
2 tablespoons Chocolate Chip

Put milk, cream & chocolate in a milk frothing cup used for espresso. Froth milk as you would for cappuccino. When milk is hot remove frothing wand and whisk or stir vigorously until chocolate is completely melted. Add Campari and Brandy. Pour into heat-resistant cup. Can be garnished with 1 large hand-cut marshmallow or a red peppermint stick.

Happy Holidays!!
