Peppermint Adult Hot Chocolate Cocktail

I don’t know about you, but I think we hit a home run with our Peppermint Adult Hot Chocolate Cocktail. I mean just look at this creamy cocktail creation. It’s perfect for any holiday shindig or snuggling up with your lover in front of a crackling fire. This is a cocktail that has “joy to the world” written all over it. There is a magical assortment of delicious ingredients: heavy cream and half-n-half, white chocolate chips, crushed peppermint, and Cinnabon liqueur. Plus, we browned the rim with toasted marshmallow! And we even added an encrusted a cinnamon stick with even more crushed peppermint.

This year, instead of leaving Santa his regular ration of cookies and milk, we’re gonna swap the milk for something he’ll remember us by, okay? We think he’s not going to mind at all! Get your Ho! Ho! Ho! on with our Peppermint Adult Hot Chocolate Cocktail!
