The best hot chocolate

After being inspired to make my own marshmallows thanks to the thread a few days below, I'd love to killer hot chocolate recipes- with/without alcohol, homemade, or the best pre-packaged. I had a prepackaged Lindt hot chocolate last night which was great.
My vote is for Cadbury's Drinking Chocolate. It is not sold at retail in the United States---for years I ordered it from Harrod's but now you can order it online from places in the States that import English groceries---just google "Cadbury's Drinking Chocolate". Try it on a snowy night with a shot of rum in it.
I sneak a pinch of cinnamon and powdered chile in mine. Just a smidge, mind you. You should hardly feel the tingle of hot pepper. Makes the whole warm drink ever so piquant.
chop up high quality hi cocoa content chocolate, put in a blender. add drostes or other cocoa powder. pour hot milk on top and blend
