4 cl Scotch
1/2 cup strong Hot chocolate
Pour first the scotch and then the cocoa over a lot of ice in a huge glass. The cocoa is going to melt 5-6 ice cubes, and it is always nice to have some left :)
2 oz Heavy cream
6-8 oz Milk
1 stick Cinnamon
1 Vanilla bean, split in half length wise
2 oz finely chopped dark Chocolate
Fresh Whipped cream
Heat the cream and milk with the cinnamon and vanilla bean very slowly for 15-20 minutes. (If you don't have any beans add 1-2 tsp of vanilla after heating). Remove the bean and cinnamon. Add the chocolate. Mix until fully melted. Serve topped with some very dense fresh whipped cream. Serves 1-2 depending upon how much of a glutton you are. For a richer chocolate, use 4 oz of milk, 4 oz of cream, 4 oz of chocolate. Serve in coffee mug.
