Nonna’s Hot Chocolate

Nonna's Hot Chocolate

One of the main reasons I wanted to make the coffee cynar foam was for the idea of this cocktail. Every young Italian American boy has memories of their Nonna, in this case it was my great grandmother, who came to the US at the age of 18.  She used to always put a dash of amaretto into hot chocolate after playing out in the snow for that little bit extra to warm you up and that is where I came up with the idea for this drink. Winter was coming and it was time for a hot cocktail.

There was no better way to take inspiration from your Nonna in a cocktail that to use Italian liquors of course.
