Maman Lavender Hot Chocolate
Who doesn’t love sipping hot chocolate as the snow flies? After a particularly festive dinner party, tempt your guests with one of InStyle’s favorite hot cocktails: Spiked Maman Lavender Hot Chocolate. Inspired by Maman, a French-style café in NYC, this drink has all the sumptuous flavor you remember from childhood with an adult kick that will have your guests raising a glass in your honor. The lavender sets this particular drink apart, and it pairs extraordinarily well with chocolate. The key is to “crush lavender with your fingertips into the milk” and when pouring into the mugs, use “a small strainer to catch the lavender pieces.” The decadent Grand Marnier is poured into the mugs or heatproof glasses separately, allowing you to make a batch of non-alcoholic mocktails as well as the spiked version for all of your guests to enjoy.
