After a big day outside, we like a bit of tranquility, accompanied by a warm and comforting beverage. No need to complicate things, we love to keep it simple and take it easy.

That is why we want to share this recipe with you, one concocted by our friend Étienne from the Distillerie de Montréal. It’s a hot chocolate with espresso and spiced rum, combining our L’Après-Ski espresso blend with the Rosemont distillery’s L’Après-Ski spiced rum!

Great for the cottage or at home to help you warm up and relax; enjoy!
