Imagine taking one of the best liquids on earth (that would be red wine) and combining it with another of the most magical beverages ever invented (i.e. hot chocolate). What do you get? Red wine hot chocolate. Yup, simple as that, and yes it's a thing. And it totally works. On certain nights, this genius mashup is more delicious than straight-up red wine, cozier than hot chocolate, and pretty much the best thing you could possibly be drinking. When we first tried to picture it, we thought, "mmm, no..." but then we tried it and switched to yes. Make that YES.
Sure, you could buy a cup of hot chocolate and dump some wine into it, or you can make your own version in minutes—and let the red wine warm up right along with the milk and chocolate. Which is what we'd recommend. Just warm up some milk along with dark chocolate chunks in a saucepan, then when they're well combined, stir in the red wine. Serve in a mug and consume immediately, or top with whipped cream and whatever garnishes you like with your hot boozy drinks: Cinnamon stick? Dash of nutmeg? The full, short recipe is at Imma Eat That. We wouldn't be surprised if this thing starts showing up at every bar everywhere this winter.
