Cozy Up With This Decadently Spiced Spiked Hot Chocolate!
So what exactly is Licor 43? It is a Spanish liqueur made according to a secret recipe with a mix of 43 different herbs and spices, hence the name. The result is a smooth, sweet, and slightly spicy taste that goes perfectly with hot chocolate's rich, creamy taste.
The result is a luxurious and delicious hot chocolate that you will love. The Licor 43 adds a subtle flavor to the traditional hot chocolate, while the whipped cream and vanilla provide a rich and decadent finish.
What do you need for Choco Licor 43?
To prepare this Spiked Hot Chocolate, you require the following ingredients. You can find the correct amounts in the recipe card at the bottom of the blog:
- Licor 43 - or Cuarenta y Tres. A sweet Spanish liqueur with 43 ingredients, including citrus juice. And that's why it fits so well with this drink.
- Vanilla Extract - For a hint of vanilla flavor. If you can get it, use natural vanilla extract, which has a slightly deeper flavor than artificial vanilla extract. With this recipe, you can make a homemade vanilla extract (and, if you bake a lot, it is highly recommended because you can use this for a reasonable amount of time).
- Milk - Use whole milk to dissolve the chocolate.
- Dark chocolate - This chocolate has an intense taste. It contains more cocoa than sugar. That is good because you already add licor 43, which is nice and sweet.
- Cream - Use heavy cream which you can whip. Because you have to beat this, that's important. First, ensure it is cold; then, it will stiffen better.
- Confectioner's sugar - Because the cream mixture beats stiff quickly, you use powdered sugar. It dissolves quickly and mixes well. Regular sugar would give crystals.
- Cinnamon - Has a sweet woody flavor with a hint of lemon. Again, we use it here ground.
