My good friend Warren who writes some incredible stuff for many publications including Wild Review River recently threw together a great ROOT concoction for the colder months ahead. You should jot this down like I’m doing…
Hot Chocolate for a cold day
2 Ounces of Single Origin Hot Chocolate from Askinosie (or your choice)
2 shots Root-The USDA Certified Organic Neutral Spirits with North American Herbs and Pure Cane Sugar
1 shot Branca Menta Amaro (super intense mint liquor from Milano, Italy
freshly whipped cream
(there REALLY is no substitute for the real thing, throw out those cans of chemical fluff they call whipped cream)
Prepare a mug with boiling water to heat through and through.
Pour out the water, the mug should be really hot.
Add Branca Menta, then the Root liquor, then top with Hot Chocolate-finish with a large spoonful of freshly whipped cream.. scrape some fresh nutmeg over the top and reflect on your fine manners by offering your friend a cup.
….. sip and enjoy!
