I got the mix from World Market along with the marshmallow snowflakes. The rum from my libation tables :-)
You only need two teaspoons of the cocoa mix with hot but not boiling water. I always add in a splash (okay two) of the rum and than add in the cocoa. Place snowflake in as soon as you finish stirring. Depending on what kind of mood I am in I will switch out rum with vodka whip cream and maybe add in just a sprinkle of sugar if I don't have marshmallows.
Tasks for Newtonmas: Take a moment to appreciate gravity and the laws of motion. If there’s snow outside, have a snowball fight with a friend or a member of your family. –OR– Take some time out to enjoy the alchemical goodness of a hot toddy or chocolate or any drink that relies on basic chemistry/alchemy (coffee with cream or sugar / tea with milk or sugar or lemon, etc.). Post a picture of your libations and the recipe if it’s unique and you’re ok with sharing it.
