How to Make Bicerin: The Coffee Drink of Your Dreams!

If you want a beverage that is both chocolately and coffee based, and also incorporates a strong hint of alcohol, this might be the beverage for you! It's a coffee-chocolate-cream concoction that was created in Italy's chocolate capital, Turin. The drinks name comes from the Caffe al Bicerin, and that's where the name comes from! It didn't specifically have booze from the beginning, but when you're looking for a hot winter treat, I think it's completely acceptable to add the alcohol! ---------------------------------------------------------------- Recipe by Chow: Ingredients: 1 1/2 ounces freshly made espresso 1 1/2 ounces freshly made hot chocolate 1 1/2 ounces heavy cream *For a spiked variation, add 1 1/2 ounces Patrón XO Café or other coffee-flavored liqueur to the hot chocolate before adding it's layer! 1. Place a cocktail shaker in the freezer until well chilled, at least 10 minutes. 2. Fill a large heatproof glass with very hot tap water and set aside. 3. To serve, empty the glass and dry it out. 4. Layer the ingredients in the glass by placing the shot of espresso in the bottom and then, while slightly tilting the glass, slowly pouring in the hot chocolate. 5. Remove the shaker from the freezer, add the cream, and shake vigorously until frothy, at least 20 times. 6. Spoon the shaken cream on top of the hot chocolate and serve immediately.

Japanese Sake Has Amazing Benefits For Your Skin
No worries, you won't get tipsy. If you enjoy a few shots of sake every now and then, you'll be excited to know that the warm drink actually has some amazing benefits when it comes to your skin. Yes, you read that correctly. A Japanese rice wine you usually pair with your sushi can have you waking up like Beyonce. Flawless, honey. According to our favorite girl Chrissy Teigen, she informed viewers on her daytime talk show Fab Life, that the popular skincare brand SK-II's is inspired by none other than sake. While most of us are probably wide mouthed with surprise, for the Japanese, using sake for your skin has been a tradition for years. They even go as far as bathing in the wine on New Year's Day to rid themselves of evil spirits. According the SK-II's, they use an ingredient in their skincare line called pitera ["derived from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process"] which is a strain of yeast found in the sake. How amazing and interesting is that? It's becoming a trend to find skincare products that happen to be infused with this all natural ingredient and the results happen to be amazing. So, grab yourself a shot glass, throw one back and keep scrolling to see a few products that will give you the skin you've always drank -- oops, I meant dreamt of.
