How to Make It

Serves 2.

Add the milk, butter, and chocolate to a saucepan over medium heat. Mix until the butter and chocolate are melted and incorporated. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and add the schnapps and whiskey. Mix well, remove from the heat, then divide between two large mugs. Top each with a handful of marshmallows and enjoy.

Why We Like It

Whiskey is great for giving you a false sense of warmth, but it’s also fantastic in hot cocktails. This is especially true when the holidays have come and gone and you’re faced with three more months of biting weather, dangerous ice, and dead trees.
