If we had known how versatile our Mint Julep Cocktail Mixer was from the beginning, we might have named it something less specific. Sure it makes a mean Mint Julep, but Nashville barkeeps and foodies continue to find additional uses for this premium mixer, from mojitos to mules and even some fine non-alcoholic beverages.
Case in point.
When it's cold out, there's nothing like a rich hot chocolate to warm your belly and induce feelings of goodwill toward your fellow man. And if you happen to tip an ounce or two dark rum in there ... well, Eli respects that.
This recipe is ideal with rich Dutch cocoa powder, though any premium cocoa will create a winner. The salt is optional but give it a try at least once. And use whole milk, forpetesake. We only go around once.
6 oz. Milk
1 TBSP. Cocoa Powder
1 oz. Eli Mason Mint Julep mixer
Pinch of Salt
Warm the milk. Whisk in the cocoa powder and salt. Stir in the Mint Julep mixer and serve with marshmallows. This recipe is easily doubled.
