Hot Cocoa Cocktails to keep us Warm

The holidays are behind us but winter has only just begun! William Grant & Sons, a family-owned distillery of award-winning brands, has four hot cocoa cocktails that put a twist on the classic treat, hot chocolate. Cozy up next to the fire with a good book and enjoy these hot cocoa elixirs.


Icelandic Hot Chocolate

1 ½ part Reyka Vodka

6 part of Hot Chocolate (Swiss Miss)

¾ part Ancho Reyes

1 dash of Angostura Bitters


Glass: Hot Toddy Glass or Styrofoam Cup

Garnish: Mini Marshmallows or whip cream

Method: Build ingredients in cup

The use of Icelandic glacier spring water and lava rocks as a natural filtration system gives Reyka Vodka a silky finish.


Cocoa Buie II

2 parts Drambuie

9 parts Hot Milk

3 tbsp Hot Cocoa mix

1/8 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1/8 tsp Kosher Salt

Optional Garnish with miniature marshmallows


In a saucepan combine all ingredients and warm over medium heat. Stir slowly until simmering. Serve hot.


A unique blend of aged Scotch whiskey with a secret combination of spices, heather honey and herbs, Drambuie lives up to its name meaning, “the drink that satisfies.”


SJ & Hot Chocolate

1 ½ parts Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

1½ parts Butterscotch Schnapps

3 parts Hot Chocolate

Dash of Orange bitters


Add equal parts liquor to hot chocolate, top with whipped cream, shaved chocolate, and garnish with a cinnamon stick or candy cane

Carefully selected rums from the finest Caribbean distilleries and a blend 100% natural spices and flavors creates the well-crafted Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum named after Norman Collins who applied the same amount of craftsmanship to his work.


Spiced Hot Chocolate

1 ½ parts Milagro Añejo

3 parts Abuelita Chocolate Tablets or your favorite Hot chocolate Powder and Heavy Cream

1 pinch Grated Chili Chocolate Bar

Glass: Clear Mug


Build in a clear mug or other drink vessel suitable for hot beverages. Top with whipped cream and chili chocolate shavings.

The smooth, refined, agave-forward taste of Milagro Añejo is the result of it aging for 18 months in American oak barrels, six months longer than most añejos.
