Snuggle up with a delicious adult take on everyone’s favorite winter drink – Hot Chocolate.
Make it at home or try it at Carribean Restaurant, Kokomo where Rael is the Beverage Director.


2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk – any kind you like
1.5 oz Bacardi rum
1 oz of Montepulciano red wine



1) Make the hot cocoa – warm the milk in a saucepan on the stove and add the first 3 ingredients whisking to combine. As a shortcut, you could use your favorite ready-made hot chocolate brand from the store. 
2) Add the Bacardi rum and Montepulciano red wine and stir to combine
3) Serve in a tiki mug
