The Best Boozy Hot Chocolate Recipe

There’s a few good things about winter: building snowmen, snowball fights, cute boots, nights by a cozy fire, and of course, a nice toasty mug full of hot chocolate. Ah yes, the childhood drink that continues to be a treat well into adulthood. But guess what? We’re now officially (and legally) allowed to add a few extra ingredients into this sweet treat, making it a blissfully-boozy warm cocktail. *If you’re a real lush like me, you can add an additional shot of Raspberry Chambord.

The Best Boozy Hot Chocolate Recipe

  • Author: Carmen
  • Total Time: 10 Mins
  • Yield: 2 Servings 1x


  • 2 Cups of Whole Milk
  • 3/4 Chocolate Chips (semi sweet)
  • 1 tsp Sugar (optional – the chocolate chips bring a lot of sweetness)
  • 2 oz. Raspberry Chambord
  • 1 oz. Kahlúa
  • Whipped Cream *optional


  1. Add your milk and sugar into a small saucepan, give it a nice stir, and set heat to medium/low. DO NOT BOIL.
  2. Once the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat down to low.
  3. In a separate sauce pan or microwave safe container, melt your chocolate chips. Don’t burn them, so set your stovetop to low heat, or keep an eye on them in the microwave.
  4. Pour your melted chocolate into the warm milk, and stir until fully blended.
  5. Now it’s time for the fun part! Just before taking your hot chocolate off the stove, add in your liquor. Stir for around 1 minute, remove from heat, and serve immediately.
