college cocktails: hot cocoa & tequila

Current weather forecast: blizzards and getting blitzed! 

WELCOME to the first installment of COLLEGE COCKTAILS. Just because I’m in college doesn’t mean I can’t be a fancy broad. Yes, I love keg beer and bottom-self tequila as much as the next freshly 21-year-old, but once in a while its nice to have something that I isn’t serve in a red solo cup.

Tonight my friends and I snuggled up on the couch for the Grammys as snow actually POURED from the sky, #snowday!!! What better way to celebrate another university snowday than with some warm chocolate drink with a lil splash of love??

Recently I came across this fancy shmancy recipe for “Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Tequila,” you can find it here.

But since I’m balling on a budget, I decided to simplify the recipe to something a little more struggling-college-student friendly!

Chocolate Caliente Cuervo

1 pack of hot cocoa mix
2% Milk
Your favorite tequila
ALL OPTIONAL:
Ground cinnamon
Carmel sauce
Sea salt
Dark chocolate
Whipped cream

So if you looked at the original recipe, it’s going to tell you to measure out everything in ounces, get a sauce pan, blah blah – who has the time??

Prepare the hot coco mix as directed with milk, splash some tequila in there – and then add the extra stuff to your own taste!

I like ground cinnamon, caramel sauce, and a little whipped cream on top.

Bottoms up!!

XO, MEESH
