Last week, we talked about how there are lots of options for milk-based cocktails without dairy. Today let's talk about drinks you can make starting out with just some hot water and a hot cocoa packet! Some hot cocoas are so much better than others, and obviously the milk of your choice will make it richer and creamier, so it's totally up to you how you want to mix it.
The easiest thing to do, of course, is to simply spike your cocoa however you want it, which you can do with whatever you have on hand. While this is the most convenient course, it may not be the tastiest option. For that, you can try any of these excellent ideas. Some half & half or heavy cream will do wonders for your cocoa, and some cinnamon, salt or marshmallows will really set off your drink. Add some spiced rum for a warming kick!
