This is the perfect DIY gift for your friends and family, or a treat for yourself.
Need a gift idea? Or just a little boozy cocktail to get you in the holiday spirit?
This Fernet Hot Chocolate makes a perfect gift, or treat for yourself, this holiday and winter season.
Fernet is an Italian amaro and digestif. During my trip to Italy this summer, I fell deeply in love with this digestif as a shot to have after a meal to settle the stomach. Not only is it delicious, but it works. Fernet has a blend of herbs that have notes of saffron, myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile and cardamom. It makes a lovely pairing with hot chocolate.
This gift set makes 8-10 cups of hot chocolate with your favorite nut milk or milk. The fernet mini bottle is perfect for one drink. Other recommendations are bourbon or tequila.
Cheers & Happy Holidays.
