Rum & Spice is Nice

Rum & Spice is Nice, oh yes it is!

This lovely Rum Hot Chocolate is NICE !  In fact its’ more than nice it’s absolutely AMAZING and goes beautifully with Ben’s Biscotti.

They are totally made for each other.

According to Wiki:

Hot chocolate, also known as drinking chocolate, cocoa, and as chocolate tea in Nigeria, is a heated drink consisting of shaved chocolate, melted chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk or water, and usually a sweetener. Hot chocolate may be topped with whipped cream.

What isn’t nicer and more yummy than hot chocolate with a splash of rum and spice?!




  • Mug of milk (250ml ish)
  • 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of Allspice powder (or pinch of each of nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger powder)
  • 1 or 2 teaspoons of dark rum ( I use Captain Morgan)
  • Whipped cream

Preparation Method

  1. Heat milk in pan
  2. Take off heat and whisk in cocoa – you can do a paste first but I don’t bother as it will dissolve if you just whisk it
  3. Stir in Allspice, Sugar and Rum
  4. Pour into mug
  5. Top with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder or chocolate curls
  6. Grab biscotti and DUNK
