Red wine hot chocolate

Red wine hot chocolate

Nothing beats a hot chocolate on a cold winters day, but imagine if we could combine one our childhood favourites with red wine! This delicious and comforting beverage is the perfect treat for cool nights. See below for the recipe


  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup red wine (We used the 2009 Cabernet Merlot)
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • Optional: Whipped cream


In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk and chocolate chips. Whisk until chocolate is melted into milk and you have a thick and creamy chocolate milk. Pour in red wine and heat until everything is hot. Pour into 2 mugs or 6-8 smaller glasses and top with whipped cream.

This drink is very rich in flavour, so you might opt to serve it in 6-8 smaller glasses. Add your favourite toppings and enjoy!
