Red Wine Hot Chocolate

We love nibbling dark chocolate alongside a glass of red wine.

The two flavours combined in a mug of hot chocolate is an unexpected treat.


1/3 cup dry red wine
1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
4 tbsp simple syrup
pinch of salt
2/3 cup milk

Combine red wine and cocoa powder in a heavy bottom pan over medium heat.

Stir until combined.

Add simple syrup and kosher salt.

Increase heat and bring to a boil while stirring.

Reduce heat back to medium.

Add milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly.

Heat through, pour into a mug and serve.
