The ultimate fusion drink, this hot chocolate pairs up Chinese five-spice powder with an orange-flavored rum from Martinique for a spicy citrus taste that hits the spot.

What to buy:
Clément Créole Shrubb liqueur features a blend of rums flavored with spices and orange. It can be found at specialty liquor stores or online.

Five-spice powder is a Chinese spice mix that livens up anything it touches. It can be found at most major grocery stores or you can make your own.

For this recipe, use high-end chocolate, such as El Rey 41 percent milk chocolate.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine milk and cream in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until simmering, about 4 minutes.
  2. 2Add milk chocolate and whisk until completely melted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in Clément Créole Shrubb liqueur and five-spice powder until well incorporated. Serve immediately.
