I don’t know where I got this recipe but supposedly, it’s the one served, in the White House, when ever it’s required.

6 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
2 1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cup cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of cinnamon
Whipped Cream for topping
Orange zest for topping
Cocoa powder for topping


In a sauce pan combine the cocoa, salt, and sugar. Add the milk. Whisk to combine and heat to dissolve. Then add the light cream, cinnamon, vanilla. Whisk to combine and heat to a simmer. Whisk just before serving and pour the cocoa into warm mug. Top with whipped cream, cocoa powder, and fine orange zest.
