Thirsty Thursday: Hot Cocoa Rum Cocktail

January 15, 2015

When you come in from the cold and snow nothing takes the chill off better than a hot cocoa. Add a splash of rum and you're on your way to warmth even faster! This decadent cocktail is spiked with 23-year-old Zacapa Rum and a splash of Pedro Ximenez Sherry. It's then topped with whipped cream and a kick of spice from freshly grated cinnamon and pink peppercorns.
