Whisk all ingredients except for the vodka in a medium saucepan on medium-low heat until chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth (Do Not Boil).
Take hot chocolate off the heat and pour into individual glasses. Then add 1 shot or less (depending on your preference) of vanilla vodka.
Mix well and sprinkle with nutmeg and a sprinkle of cinnamon for spice.
Add some extra flair by serving with cinnamon sticks and star anise pods.
