How To Make Boozy Hot Chocolate

Yes, winter is here. No, it’s not leaving anytime soon. But what better way is there to passive aggressively combat mother nature’s wrath than by spiking your hot chocolate? And not just by dumping some Bailey’s in it.

These sumptuous concoctions are far more creative—and flavourful— and not likely something your dear ol’ granny would serve (although mine would). So read on to pick the perfect mug of booze-laden hot chocolate to sit back and sip while glare out the window at all the f*cking snow.

Take heed, though: this might become a habit.
