Lumumba or Tote Tante as in Dead Aunt

I wanted something warm today because it was raining the whole day and still a bit far away from spring to my taste.
I had some little chocolate pieces leftover from christmas and some easter eggs and they are great in a pot of milk, adding some rum and cream makes it a wonderful drink to warm your from the insides.


The drink is called Tote Tante or Dead Aunt in the north of Germany along the coast of the North Sea. All the others call it just Lumumba. Patrice Lumumba came up with it.

recipe for 4:
100ml water
100 g mixed chocolates
750 ml milk
1 tbsp cocoa

melt the chocolate in the heating water, add the cocoa and bring it to a boil, add the milk and bring it back to the boil.
Beat the double cream to soft peaks and take 4 glasses, 3/4 full of hot cocoa and add the rum and top of with cream and a bit of cinnamon.

120ml rum
175 ml double cream
a pinch of cinnamon
