It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is already the first day of December! December means snowfall, the holidays, and my favorite-Peppermint Mocha Lattes. I am not normally a latte drinker, if you hand me a regular coffee from any diner I will enjoy it just as much as a fancy coffee brewed from any ‘must go-to’ café, but once the holidays roll around I crave Peppermint Mocha Lattes! I blame this addiction on my college days when I would be up all night writing papers and cramming for finals before the holiday break (don’t be fooled, I was not an over-achiever, I just had a horrible problem with procrastination), and these lattes were my secret weapon for staying awake.
Now when December is here I can relax, sip happily and toast to the holiday season with my favorite holiday combo of Peppermint and Mocha mixed together in a cocktail.
Peppermint Mocha Martini
- 2½ parts ABSOLUT® Vodka
- 1 part Hiram Walker® White Crème de Cacao
- ½ part Hiram Walker® Peppermint Schnapps
- ½ part Kahlua® Coffee Liqueur
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for at least ten seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Another delicious way to make a boozy twist on the Peppermint Mocha Latte is by adding Kahlúa’s holiday limited edition, Peppermint Mocha, to your coffee or hot chocolate. Their Peppermint Mocha offering is amazing and I highly suggest stocking up on it before it’s gone!
