When I saw this recipe I almost didn’t try it. The original title, ” Alcoholic Hot Chocolate”, sounded like hot chocolate for people with a drinking problem? Hot chocolate for alcoholics! I’m sure I’m the only one that read the title that way but, read it that way, I did. I’m so glad I tried this. It was so deeelicious I was really blown away by this. The combo of honey, cinnamon, and the rum created a lot of subtle nuances that I didn’t expect. I was surprised. I wanted to change the name still, so I did. Enjoy!
