Own winter with Van Ryn’s brandy and NOMU Chococcino

MAY 15, 2018

Fight off the winter chill in the most decadent way with hot drinking chocolate and fine brandy cocktails, while raising a toast to World Chocolate Day on 7 July.

Fine potstill brandy and quality, dark chocolate always makes a great pairing. Using Van Ryn’s 10 year Vintage Brandy and Van Ryn’s 12 year Old Distiller’s Reserve potstill, cocktail specialist Owen O’ Reilly created three hot chocolate and brandy cocktails – or as he likes to call them, hot brandy choctails.

An extra flair of luxury is added with NOMU’s range of premium hot drinking chocolates. This recipe can be made at home and promises the most decadent accompaniment to help you own winter.




Use two small pots or frothing jugs with handles. Add all ingredients to one pot or jug and heat while stirring.

Carefully light the liquid using a long handled lighter, and slowly pour burning liquid from one pot or jug to the other.  Repeat this step 4 or 5 times, to aerate the mixture.

Pour into a serving vessel and garnish with marshmallows.
