I tried a million different ways to write this intro that didn't make me sound like a grumpy, old alcoholic (I'm not, for the record). But frankly, I can't really contain my excitement about a roundup of boozy hot chocolate recipes. As an avid drinker — of hot chocolate, that is — and the mom of a rambunctious 2-year-old, spiking my hot cocoa seems about as natural a choice as hiding vegetables in my daughter's dinner. (Please tell me you do that too.) Since it's the holidays and baby, it's cold outside, a nice spiked hot chocolate is the perfect way to settle down after a long, cold day.
Whether you have a fancy holiday party to attend, a family Christmas with your to survive, or just a quiet evening at home spent binge-watching holiday movies, I promise there's the hot choc-tail of your dreams. (Of course, if you do plan on enjoying an alcoholic hot chocolate at a function, make sure to drink responsibly and have a designated drive to safely take you home.)_
With everything from white chocolate to peppermint to red velvet (and that's just the liquor options.) These boozy beverages will ensure that you are well equipped to tackle whatever the holidays throw your way, and enjoy them to the fullest.
