So make this drink even more decadent with the addition of a nice, full-bodied red wine. Now the drink won’t just warm you up, it chill you out as well. Watch the video above to see how to make it.

Red Wine Hot Chocolate


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sweetened cocoa powder or hot cocoa mix
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • whipped cream for topping

Slowly heat milk in a saucepan on low, being carefully not to scorch the milk. Once the milk is warm, whisk in the cocoa powder until it’s fully incorporated. Remove from heat and add the red wine.
