How to Make a Mexican Hot Chocolate Eggnog Cocktail

There’s a chill in the air and a jingle when you leave the grocery store. It could only mean one thing, time for hot chocolate and eggnog (made with a kick of course.) This cocktail recipe that I am sharing today is such a treat all year round; not just for Christmas.

I love hot chocolate and this Mexican hot chocolate is packed full of chocolate and cinnamon flavors. It is a perfect base for elevating your typical eggnog and adding a chocolate flair and the spiced rum adds some additional flavor. This drink would also work well as a punch or a dessert punch. What could be better than spiked eggnog? Spiked eggnog with chocolate!
