Gingerbread Hot Chocolate Recipe
Do you love the holiday season? Warm up this winter with a steaming mug of spiked gingerbread hot chocolate. This recipe is very simple and includes homemade gingerbread syrup made with just a few ingredients.
1/2 cup Granulated sugar
1 pc. Cinnamon stick
4 pcs. Whole cloves
4 pcs. Whole allspice berries
1/2 tsp. Ground nutmeg
1 cup Whole milk
1 oz. Hot cocoa mix
1 1/2 oz. Spiced rum or ginger vodka
Add the water into the saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer.
In a small saucepan over low heat, gently heat the milk. Stir it constantly with a whisk, and do not let it come to a boil or scald.
Pour the spiced rum or ginger vodka into a mug with the gingerbread syrup.
You can use ground ginger to substitute for fresh ginger, and you can also make this drink non-alcoholic by skipping the alcohol, which is, in fact, very mild in this recipe.
