Our Fall Cocktail Pick:
Cinnamon Campfire Hot Chocolate!
It’s officially Fall! As we get excited for temperatures to start dropping (although in Southern California it takes a bit longer) we also start thinking about the perfect cocktail to accompany the festive Fall weather. Nothing says Fall like two of our favorite things, campfires and hot chocolate! Katie and I have gone on a couple surfing/camping trips and we always love to have this boozy hot chocolate around the campfire, so we thought we would share!
The main ingredient that makes this hot chocolate an amazing adult beverage is RumChata, a cinnamon rum that gives the hot chocolate a creamy texture with a hint of Horchata taste. I also prefer to add a ton of cinnamon to mine but that is completely up to you. It’s also very easy to modify this recipe to be a very quick and easy 2 minute cocktail, instead of making the hot chocolate from scratch, just use a instant mix packet and a shot of RumChata and your’e done! I personally prefer it from scratch but sometimes a girl just needs a drink quickly =)
