  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine Use your favorite
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chopped or chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch cinnamon or nutmeg as a topping
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream whipped separately as a topping


  • Combine the milk, wine and chocolate in a double boiler. Warm until the chocolate melts, scraping the bottom of the pan often to keep the chocolate from burning. When the chocolate is melted, remove from heat and whisk briskly to make sure the chocolate is thoroughly incorporated. Stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream. You can add to the richness of this drink by grating a bit of chocolate on top of the cream, or dust with cinnamon or nutmeg.
