Spiced hot cocoa with a shot of bourbon makes for a cozy and indulgent seasonal treat.
Add all ingredients except bourbon to saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until dry ingredients are dissolved and mixture is uniform.
Cook for about six minutes until mixture is steaming. Do not bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat and stir in bourbon. Alternatively you can add bourbon as hot cocoa cooks for less of an alcohol taste.
Divide cocoa between two mugs and garnish as desired. Enjoy carefully and responsibly!
