Though this blog typically sticks to Pakistani Cuisine, today I felt like mentioning the best way to drink hot chocolate (don’t kill me, it’s just my opinion). I couldn’t just stick to hot choco, without mentioning our traditional Pakistani tea (and my not-so-traditional variation).

Firstly: Hot chocolate

I know there are a million and one ways to make this amazing drink. However, I will iterate my own version.


1 tsp cocoa powder

1/4 tsp espresso powder/instant coffee

2 oz chocolate

3 tbsp whipped cream

1/2 cup half and half

1/ 2 cup milk

Sugar/honey to taste

pinch of salt


  1. Add the cocoa powder, espresso powder, sugar and salt to a 250 ml cup.
  2. Add 1/2 tbsp. water to the cup and mix until homogenous.
  3. Heat the half and half and the milk in a pan together.
  4. Add the chocolate directly to the pan.
  5. Whisk together to dissolve the chocolate.
  6. Once the milk has boiled, pour it into the cup.
  7. Stir everything together, then top with the whipped cream.
