This beautifully boozy and festive mulled wine hot chocolate recipe is the perfect way to warm up over Christmas. Combining the red wine with the spices, citrus and chocolate results in a beautiful flavour that is nowhere near as rich as milk-based chocolate drinks.

This recipe is taken from Adventures with Chocolate by Paul A Young (£17.99, Kyle Books). Photography by Anders Schønnemann.

Put 500ml water, the sugar, the cocoa powder and all the spices in a pan and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat, add the chocolate and whisk well until the chocolate is fully incorporated. Add the clementines and rosemary and allow to infuse for 10 minutes. Add the red wine and warm through gently
Serve warm rather than hot
