{ instructions }

In a small pot, bring to a simmer 125 ml of liquid of choice { water | milk | cream }.

Add 30 grams of drinking chocolate { try to avoid using tablespoons, weight rations matter ~ 2+ tablespoons }.

Turn off the heat, but keep the pot on the burner – vigorously whisk the mixture until combined + melted { this can also be done in a blender }. Do not use a spatula, it won't work.

Remove from the burner, pour into your favourite mug, put on your favorite song, grab your favorite book, cozy up in your favorite sweater, in your favorite spot and let this fresh elixir melt you away. Repeat in 24 hours { or less, depending on the day }.

Garnish ideas: flecks of sea salt | cinnamon | cayenne pepper | ginger.

Note: for a supremely decadent treat, reduce liquid by half or double the chocolate. This will produce a thick beverage – an electric whisk or small blender is best for mixing.
