Whether you like it with whipped cream or marshmallows, coffee or peppermint, hot chocolate is a classic winter go-to drink. It’s a standard. A default. Ho hum.
What if you’re (gasp) tired of all that creamy, chocolatey sweetness? What if you simply (eek) want something a little more exotic—a little more interesting than basic chocolate-in-a-mug? There’s a whole world of hot drinks out there—no chocolate required.
