It’s only a short time until December 1st! I’m a huge gift giver (it’s my love language). This year, I am stocking up on the Heritage Distilling advent calendars! These sell out fast, so we’ve teamed up to let you guys know to grab them now. Heritage Distilling is local here to the Pacific Northwest. They make some of the the most incredible craft spirits. These advent calendars are only $59 for 24 days of cute minis (mini alcohol bottles). These make amazing hostess gifts, co-worker gifts, white elephant or gift exchange favors, and they are a hit with teachers and bosses! If you visit heritagedistilling.com and use the discount code Joyful10, you’ll receive $10 off of any advent calendar you order (no limit)!
Now…onto the boozy hot cocoa!
Prep time: 15 minutes
2 cups whole milk
2 cups half and half
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
3 mini bottles of Elk Rider Rye Whiskey from the Heritage Distilling Advent calendar
1 cup chopped dark chocolate for garnish
2 cups prepared whipped cream
In a large heavy-bottom sauce pan, heat the milk, half and half, chocolate syrup, cocoa, and salt until steam rises from the top and tiny bubbles appear around the outer rim of the milk in the pan. Do not boil the mixture. Remove from heat and add the whiskey.
To serve, ladle spiked hot cocoa into mugs, top with whipped cream, and garnish with chopped chocolate.
