There are two truly perfect winter drinks: Red wine and hot chocolate.
And while one tends to be drunk just before bed and the other at the dinner table, one must ask - why can’t we have them both at the same time?
Kylie Held Mitchell, the brains behind the blog Yeah..ImmaEatThat has come to the rescue with a recipe for red wine hot chocolate, and it sounds both unusual and incredible at the same time.

The warmth of hot chocolate with the warmth of alcohol - what’s not to love?
If you want to make it, mix one and a half cups of milk and one third of a cup of dark chocolate chips in a saucepan over a medium heat, and stir it until it becomes a magical hot-chocolate substance.
Next comes the wine - add one cup of red wine and heat until it’s at your perfect temperature.
Red wine hot chocolates anyone?…. I think quite appropriate for your Chilly Friday evening.. It’s a shame we don’t serve alcohol 😛.. #byowine #hotchocolatetime #brisbanecafe #winteriscoming #hotchocolate #chocolatelover #tastytreat #redwinehotchocolate

Finally, Mitchell recommends topping the drink with coconut whipped cream.
If you’re not totally convinced, never fear - Instagrammers from far and wide have been trying out the recipe and are absolutely loving it.
