A Drink today! – Chaplain’s Cherry Chocolate

08 Feb

Okay, here’s something for everyone that takes a winter classic, and I added a summer twist.

If anyone out there is tired of the snow, or simply wants a chilling drink, give this a try…

SO SIMPLE!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1.5 oz (or to taste)  Hot Chocolate mix
  • 1 Tablespoon (or more to taste) Grenadine (non-alcoholic) [can be found at Wal-Mart]
  • 1/2 cup Milk (I use 2%, but you can switch [1%, skim, etc.])
  • 2 Cups Ice
  • Blender

Start:

  1. Mix all ingredients together, I prefer to add milk last, but that’s my preference, I don’t know if it really helps anything.
  2. Blend until smooth (A Magic Bullet works excellent, and not only for making drinks!)
  3. May top with whipped cream and a cherry.

Serve immediately.

          What I love most about this drink is the slush chocolate taste with the hint of grenadine. As I post more recipes, I’m sure they’ll be including splashes of grenadine. Shirley Temple knew what she was doing! (For those of you who don’t know, a Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic drink with ginger-ale and grenadine. Although it’s now usually served with sprite/7-up.)
