Whip Up Another Spiked Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate, Original Cinn, and alcoholic whipped cream - a winter match made in heaven!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that your holiday celebrations went off without a hitch.

Yesterday was National Whipped Cream Day and I decided to celebrate in a most boozey fashion (I’m not very good with new years resolutions, et. al… 😉 ) . Here is the step-by-step progression:

  1. Brew hot chocolate. Believe it or not, I made my hot chocolate using the Keurig and Green Mountain Coffee’s Hot Chocolate K-cups. It makes a surprisingly above-par hot cocoa!
  2. Add 1 part Hiram Walker Original Cinn to make it a “Cinnful Hot Chocolate”.
  3. Top with a hearty serving of alcohol-infused Whipped Lightning (given to me as a gift from a friend) to make what I’ve dubbed a “Cinnfully Whipped Hot Chocolate”.
  4. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, because why not?

My boyfriend and I found this to be an absolute delight for dessert last night, and the best part is that it took practically no time at all to make! The Whipped Lightning flavor my friend sent along was the Chocolate Raspberry, which I worried at first wouldn’t pair with the cinnamon bun-like profile of Original Cinn. Luckily, the flavor in the whipped cream was pretty muted – in fact, there really wasn’t much flavor at all – and didn’t interfere with the aroma of cinnamon and vanilla that the Original Cinn gives off.

Give this one a try this weekend if you’re looking for a quick and simple drink to make while cozying up by the fireplace.

Cheers and welcome to 2011!
