Brandy (or cognac, to be precise) does not make an appearance with hot chocolate often and it's a shame because it is a fantastic combination. Of course, you could just pour hot chocolate over a shot of Hennessy and call it done, but you will be missing out on a superior drink.

It is the spiced syrup and vanilla that take the Hennessy Hot Coco from average to outstanding. The cream top and spicy-sweet garnish is just an added bonus.

Making your own simple syrup is very easy. If you do not want to tackle that small DIY project, Monin's Spiced Brown Sugar Syrup is a good alternative.


Steps to Make It

  1. Add all liquids, except the cream, to a heat-proof glass.

  2. Layer the desired amount of cream on top.

  3. Garnish with grated nutmeg and dark chocolate.
