Simple and Sweet – Spiked Hot Chocolate

There is absolutely no denying that I love myself a well-made hot chocolate. Add a bit of booze and aromatics in the form of mint, hazelnut, or even orange (orange and chocolate = a to die for combination!) and I’m content for an evening of warmth and coziness. Serious Drinks posted a collection of spiked hot chocolate recipes on the site late last week that had me drooling at my desk. And, if you still happen to be looking to wrap up your Valentine’s Day plans, skip the box of chocolates and pick up the necessary ingredients to mix one of these delights instead.

However, if your personal style rather tends to lean towards simple and straightforward, here’s a most basic – yet absolutely delicious – of hot chocolate recipes to keep in your reserves.

Snuggler:

  • 1 part Hiram Walker Peppermint Schnapps
  • Fill with Hot Chocolate

Build in a mug and garnish with whipped cream.

Trust me on this one, keeping it simple with Peppermint Schnapps, well made hot chocolate and cream (to which you can booze up, too, if homemade!) is a winning combination. Think of it as basically drinking a melted York(R) peppermint patty. What more is there to say?!

Cheers!
