"Hot" chocolate drink
A cold-temperature chocolate drink with a spicy-hot kick. Serves 1 and can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, and beyond!
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder (the kind you bake with, not the Swiss Mix kind)
  • 2 tsp malted milk powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 red Thai chili
  • 1 clove
  • ⅛ tsp grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 oz whiskey (or 1½ if you want it boozier, or omit for the kids)
  • red pepper flakes (for looks!)
  1. In a mortar, grind red chili with clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, releasing the flavors with a pestle.
  2. In the mortar or a cocktail shaker, add the chili and spices with milk, whiskey, sugar, malt powder, and cocoa powder. Shake or stir well.
  3. Pour into a serving glass and sprinkle some pepper flakes over the top.
