How to ‘Spruce Up’ Hot Cocoa 101

A most festive backdrop in which to enjoy Hiram Walker's Peppermint Schnapps

The Facebook alert on my phone lit up about 11 pm EST. I had been tagged in a friend’s festive photograph – taken over 2500 miles apart –  of a Hiram Walker Peppermint Schnapps nip before his indulging in a peppermint hot chocolate.

And so my yearning began! After all, it is the season for peppermint schnapps and hot chocolate to join together for a delicious, warming treat. So for Friday’s Featured Cocktail to last you through the weekend, I thought I’d share a hot chocolate recipe easy to please the masses –  The Breath Mint Hot Chocolate!

Breath Mint Hot Chocolate

  • ¾ part Hiram Walker Peppermint Schnapps
  • ¾ part Kahlúa
  • 4 parts Hot Chocolate

Combine ingredients and serve in a coffee mug. Top with optional garnishes of fresh whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or peppermint candies.

Yup, it doesn’t get much simpler – nor tastier on a cold winter’s weekend – than that. But if you have other tasty variations, please feel free to share your recipes or links in the comments section and I’d be happy to share them in a future post!

Have a fantastic weekend!
