Gourmet cocktails for the holidays!

Attention, rum lovers! Let yourself be tempted by Morbleu Noir, a chocolate rum made in Quebec. For the holiday season, we propose the Morbleu Hot Chocolate—a perfect cocktail for your festive evenings!

Drink Quebec!

With its sweet and chocolatey character, this Québécois rum will please all lovers of digestives. It is produced by the Distillerie Mariana, the largest independent distillery in the province.

This recipe is made with the same ingredients that were used for the Morbleu spiced rum; with perhaps a bit more of a smooth and delicate character. It is clear that this is a local product, as it is full of flavours from here that evoke winter.

Morbleu Hot Chocolate


  • 1 ½ cups milk – any kind
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa
  • 1 cinnamon stick


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and warm over low heat.
  2. When hot and the consistency is smooth, remove the cinnamon stick and pour the liquid into (Christmas!) mugs.
  3. Add an ounce of Morbleu Noir to each of the mugs.
  4. Top the cocktail with whipped cream and/or marshmallows.
  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar.
  6. Enjoy!

In the spirit of Quebec winter’s, this cocktail is perfect to accompany your return home after a day spent outside, or as a digestive after a gourmet meal, around a fireplace, with—why not—a Christmas movie!

Michele Chiarlo : A story of family and great wines

In the prestigious region of Piemonte, famous for its illustrious Barolo and Barbaresco, the wines have this unequivocal smell of an ancient dusty book. Some story they must tell! But for Alberto Chiarlo, of Michele Chiarlo wines, it takes more than a sniff of the bouquet to “get a real sense of place”.
