There are many ways to kick up hot chocolate. Marshmallows, brandy, whipped cream and even a dash of cayenne pepper are all popular options. But there is one addition that make these all sound like child's play: red wine.

Yes, red wine hot chocolate is the trendiest drink this winter. There are dozens of versions on the internet but all agree on one thing: chocolate and wine are a killer combo.

How To Make Red Wine Hot Chocolate: 3 Tasty Recipes

To make the best red wine hot chocolate you'll want to start off with high-quality dark chocolate. This will be added to the milk so it can melt as it cooks. 

A sprinkle of sugar will help it be perfectly sweet while the addition of your favorite red wine will make it boozy enough. We prefer full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon but a Malbec or Shiraz are great options too.

The Meat-Atlantic

I seriously think this Meatwave season has been cursed. In no other year have I had to cancel or postpone more Meatwaves, and when we did host cookouts, we often faced adverse weather conditions.
