Thirsty Thursday: French White Hot Chocolate


Good Morning Everyone!

The weekend (and college football gameday) is almost here!  If you are like us, then you will be partaking in tail-gate events.

Every week we have a new gameday drink.  Because the weather is a little colder this week, we have decided to go with a French White Hot Chocolate.  Our version is a slight modification from a Cosmo Chic Cocktail we heard a few years ago.  Now this is our first Thirsty Thursday, so please go easy on our food photography.


French White Hot Chocolate

8 oz. Cold Skim Milk
1 oz. Chambord
1 oz. Creme de Coca
1/2 oz. Godiva White Chocolate
1 1/2 oz. Monin White Chocolate
2 Roasted Marshmallows
Grated Bissingers Dark Chocolate to Taste



 
Make sure your milk stays as cold as possible.  We typically keep our frothing pitcher in the refrigerator so that the milk stays cold after pouring and prior to steaming.

 
Keep steaming your milk until it becomes hot and foamy.
 
Once your milk is ready, add the remaining ingredients to your frothing pitcher.  Stir until well blended and pour into your favorite hot chocolate mug.


We toasted a few marshmallows under the broiler and added them to the hot chocolate.


 
A few dark chocolate shavings and this drink is ready to enjoy on any cold day!
 
We hope you found some inspiration in this first installement of our Thirsty Thursday series.  Now lets drink to your teams success (unless they are playing ours!).
 
 
Have a great day!
 
Tonya and Rob

  9. I am not a drinker, (migraines and too many years married to an alcoholic), but if I WERE to drink this would be right up my alley! Love anything with chocolate. There is a hotel in the city that has a chocolate bar...Can't wait to check it out! Hope the team you were rooting for won! xo
