What could be better than cosying up in front of the fire with a boozy Scallywag Hot Chocolate in hand?

It’s a very simple but irresistible combination that is a must-try for Whisky lovers and chocolate fans alike.

Why Does it Work?

Thanks its rich and intense tasting notes, our recommended food pairing with Scallywag Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky is a good quality dark chocolate. If you chew the chocolate and sip the Whisky, you’ll unlock an extraordinary sensory experience of winter spices, intense dark fruits and burnt sugar.

In a similar way, when Scallywag is added to a hot chocolate, the Whisky adds a whole new dimension to the classic, comforting taste of the much-loved hot drink. It elevates the flavour profile, creating a spicy and indulgent treat full of cinnamon, orange zest, gingerbread and nutmeg.

How Do I Make a Scallywag Hot Chocolate?

Fancy trying your hand at making a scrumptious Scallywag Hot Chocolate at home? Here’s everything you need to make yourself a batch:

Ingredients

  • 520ml Whole or Semi-Skimmed Milk
  • 2 tbsp Hot Chocolate drinking chocolate – we love Cupsmith’s.
  • 35ml Scallywag Speyside Scotch Whisky (per portion)
  • Caster Sugar, to taste (optional)

Garnish

  • Whipped Cream
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Grated Chocolate

Method

  1. Simply heat the milk in a saucepan until it reaches a simmer. Maintain the simmer at medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Make sure you stir the milk regularly.
  2. Next, add the cocoa powder (and the sugar if you’re adding it) to the pan. Stir in a figure of eight motion until the cocoa (and sugar) is fully incorporated into the milk, and lumps are minimised.  
  3. Add a dram of Scallywag to each hot chocolate mug, then pour in the hot chocolate mixture over the top.
  4. Top with whipped cream, mini marshmallows and grated chocolate. A piece of Rocky Road or a Chocolate Brownie on the side is optional, but highly recommended!
