Oh boy, is it chilly outside right now! As I sit here to write, my outdoor thermometer reads 1 degree Fahrenheit. Not exactly boating weather unless you like fishing on frozen water. Some are crazy enough for that and, I say, more power to you.
But for those of us who enjoy water and sun and a delightful summer breeze, this isn’t exactly the right time of year to sit on a boat. However, it is the perfect time of year for a delicious beverage to warm our innards.
So here’s a drink to add to your choices.
White Hot Chocolate
- 1 pinch Salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
- 1 cup White chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate, good quality
All you do is mix these ingredients together and warm them in the microwave. Within five minutes, you have a warm cup of joy that’s an alternative to your regular hot chocolate drink.
It’s recommended to use good quality white chocolate because that’s the main flavor of your beverage. Then you can top this with whipped cream or add candy canes for a little extra kick. (Or for the adults, a dollop of liqueur can be used. =))
So to weather our crazy cold January, have a warm drink. Cheers and Happy New Year!
