  • 1 cup dark chocolate pieces
  • 1 ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 ½ cup red wine


  • In a small sauce pan, over medium-low heat, bring the wine and milk to a low simmer.
  • Gently add the dark chocolate pieces and carefully stir using a rubber spatula.
  • After two minutes, or when the chocolate seems to be completely melted, use a whisk and rigorously aggravate the mixture to ensure the chocolate is incorporated into the liquids.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before serving.


Yield will be about 3-4 cups. Recipe can certainly be doubled to accommodate a larger serving size. Tripling the ingredients will most likely result in burnt chocolate; it’s better to prepare the drink in batches.
