We tasted a very special version with grappa, for adults only!!
Here is the recipe.
Hot chocolate with grappa
2 cups milk
4 tbs bitter cocoa powder
3 tbs sugar
1/2 glass young Grappa
1 tbs plain flour or locust bean gum
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, whisk them thoroughly in order to break all clumps.
Put the saucepan on heat and bring to boil, stir regularly.
The liquid in the pan will thicken a little bit.
Remove from heat and pour into serving cups.
Let cool for a couple of minutes and add some wipped cream if desired.
