Leadville Hot Chocolate

I invented this drink while working as a bartender at the Delaware Hotel, in Leadville, Colorado, 1971. Had no money but lots of friends. Great people to hang with at the bar, on the job and off work, too. That was amazing times up there in the late sixties and early seventies. I believe that it was the happiest time of my life. I have alot more money now - cant say Im any happier. We were a bunch of redneck hippies running around the mountains.

Leadville Hot Chocolate

1 oz. vodka
1 oz. irish cream
1 oz kahlua
2 oz brown creme de cacao

fill to the top with hot half and half. serve in a hot chocolate mug - ok coffee mug. or for a real touch of class make regular hot chocolate using half and half and slowly stir in high quality coca dry mix to taste with sugar to taste. Takes time. This is only for cold, snowy days.

This one great recipe . Very fine smooth hot drink on a cold night. More mocha than pure chocolate .
