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
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!!
