This is hot chocolate with vanilla-flavoured vodka and amaretto. It keeps you warm on a cold day.
The first time I made this, I used regular vodka, vanilla extract and a little almond essence. It was so good, I decided to buy all the proper ingredients. Holy cow, what a night cap! Delicious! I also think the amount of alcohol was perfect. Thanks so much, Gordon! - 31 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Maybe a little more chocolate needed - was really good, though. I don't like drinks that you can taste the alcohol in it, but this was very smooth and it was just tasty, not alcohol-y. - 18 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We made our hot chocolate from scratch (recipe on the Droste box)instead of instant so, our cocoa was super yummie, smooth and rich without any alcohol at all. We really liked the recipe here, but thought the amaretto was a bit overpowering. After cutting the amount in half and keeping the vanilla vodka the same we liked it even better! - 25 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
