6 oz milk
1 ½ tablespoons Franzese Italian Hot Chocolate
2 oz espresso, brewed
1 ½ oz Grappa
2 oz whipped cream (see below)
For the whipped cream:
1 cup cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
To make the whipped cream, combine cream, sugar and vanilla on medium high speed in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Whip until soft peaks are formed (do not overwhip!). Set aside.
Bring 6 ounces of milk and one and a half tablespoons of Franzese Italian Hot Chocolate to a boil in a saucepan on the stove. Stir continuously.
Pour hot chocolate into a mug, leaving room for espresso and grappa. Add both then give it a stir. Top with whipped cream, serve and enjoy!
