Deliciously boozy hot chocolate recipes

“The world won’t get more or less terrible if we’re indoors somewhere with a mug of hot chocolate… though it’s possible it will seem slightly less terrible if there are marshmallows in it” - Kamila Shamsie.

Wrapping our chilly hands around a steaming mug of this powerful elixir is one of the best things about the season. 

However the ultimate hot choccy is, without a doubt, one which has a little extra something naughty to it. After all, tis the season to enjoy all things rich, delicious, and decadent – and that includes alcohol.

From citrusy gin infusions, to rich chocolatey cocktails, these are our absolute favourite recipes when it comes to boozy hot chocolates.

Scroll through to see them all (and don’t blame us if you wind up trying each and every single one of them)…
