What Alcohol Goes Best with Hot Chocolate?
Want to spike your hot chocolate? Great idea, because lots of liquor goes well with chocolate, even wine! Yes. You can add wine to your hot chocolate or brandy!
However, I prefer spiced rum, whiskey or bourbon. You can also try vodka, or even flavored vodka.
For a less boozy hot chocolate you can add Baileys Irish Cream, Amaretto or Kahlua. These are liquors that have less alcohol content, but lots of flavor.
