Drink of the Season: Hot Chocolate and Chartreuse
It's winter in San Francisco, which basically means it's summer in San Francisco with shorter days. This season, many San Franciscans are warming their spirits with a mixture of hot chocolate and Chartreuse. If you haven't imbibed this drink, then your winter is far colder than it needs to be. Go to one of these places to find it:
AQ - CHARTREUSE HOT CHOCOLATE: house made hot chocolate with marshmallows 1085 Mission Street
Rich Table - CARTHUSIAN HOT COCOA: CHARTRUESE, MINT, PINEAPPLE MARSHMALLOW 199 Gough Street
Or you can make it at home, like I did:
I used Mexican hot chocolate. Add 3/4 to 1 oz of Green Chartreuse, garnish with nutmeg. Simple, easy, tasty.
AQ 1085 Mission St San Francisco, CA 94103 (415) 341-9000
Rich Table 199 Gough St San Francisco, CA 94102 (415) 355-9085
