Hot Chocolate Coffee

Based on the famous House Coffee at Tosca Café in San Francisco, this concoction is equally delicious with or without the cognac.

For each serving:

  • 6 ounces prepared hot chocolate
  • 6 ounces prepared hot coffee
  • 1 ounce cognac, optional
  • freshly whipped cream
  • pinch of cinnamon

In a warm mug or stemmed glass, combine hot chocolate, coffee and cognac.  Top with whipped cream and a small sprinkling of cinnamon.  Slurp immediately.
