We are having our first ice storm of 2015; after clearing our steps and walkways and chipping the car open, thoughts immediately went to the classic hot cocoa, with a grown-up twist.
Using your favourite recipe (I used this one) make a cup of rich hot cocoa. Add in 1/2 oz Alberta Premium Dark Horse rye whisky and a splash of orange bitters. Enjoy!
