Red Wine Hot Cacao Recipe

November 7th, 2017

After the kids go to bed, spike your hot chocolate with some adult-approved ingredients. Start with red wine (‘nuff said), then whisk in a cacao powder made with cinnamon, cardamom, and superfood fungi. Each packet delivers 500 mg of dual-extracted, log-grown red Reishi mushrooms per serving, so you can enjoy a relaxing night. Cheers!
