Thirsty Thursday

It's a wee bit nasty out there this afternoon...maybe this will warm you up a bit. Today's beverage of choice is nonalcoholic, but one for the grown ups (unless you have a little one with a rather sophisticated palette). There's always next Thursday for cocktails! In the meantime, care for a little spicy with your sweet?

                                                                    Loco Cocoa
*3/4 cup cocoa powder
*3/4 cup sugar
*2 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
*2 1/4 tsp. ginger powder
*1 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
*1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients together in a jar, cover, shake and mix well. Add (to taste) to hot water or milk, your preference. Not overly sweet, add sugar if needed. And go ahead and throw a huge dollop of whipped cream on there, too...why not?

  1. Yum. I love cayenne in my cocoa...the sweet and the spicy is perfect for cold weather. I need to try it with the ginger, too!
