Donut-Topped Boozy Cocoas

The Red Wine Hot Chocolates are Inspired by Outrageous Milkshakes

— January 10, 2017 — Lifestyle
These red wine hot chocolates are not only indulgent due to the booze, they also are topped with additional treats. Created by Michelle from the blog Hummingbird High, the recipe for red wine hot chocolate Black Tap milkshakes makes a decadent treat full of wintery flavors like allspice, cinnamon, cloves and ginger.

The rich and silky beverage is inspired by New York eatery Black Tap and their outrageous dessert-topped shakes, the drinks are garnished with New York deli-style black and white cookies as well as a salted caramel donut. These are in addition to the standard whipped cream and marshmallow toppings. The red wine hot chocolates are made with merlot and good quality melted dark chocolate.

This over-the-top dessert is perfect for millennials, who have a love of wine and viral-themed beverages.
