Frosé might have been the trendy drink of summer, but it certainly isn’t something you want to snuggle up with now that it’s cold out. Pumpkin spice lattes are always an option for the fall, and hot chocolate is a classic, but neither of them quite have the allure and intrigue that frosé did this year.

So, what are you going to put in your mug when the winter blues hit?

To nobody’s surprise at all, the internet quickly became obsessed last week with the idea of red wine hot chocolate. It’s not a new concept by any means, but when blogger Imma Eat That posted her recipe for red wine hot chocolate, the internet quickly grabbed onto the idea and declared it the new thing to drink this fall and winter.

Red wine hot chocolate is exactly what you think it is: red wine mixed with homemade hot chocolate. Imma Eat That‘s simple recipe uses milk, red wine, and dark chocolate chips to create a very rich drink. Other bloggers got creative and used things like like cayenne powder, cinnamon, condensed milk, and marshmallows to create something unique.

Have you tried red wine hot chocolate? Is this something you think you’d want to drink this winter?
