The Peppermint Patty is an excellent Christmastime drink. The combination of hot chocolate, Peppermint Schnapps, and Creme de Cacao just makes you feel all warm and festive inside. Ok, it could be the alcohol and/or the hot cocoa that might give you that great feeling of warmth, but that’s neither here nor there. Chocolate and mint together is a great flavour combination, so making a warm drink mixing the two is, well, bloody genius. Enjoy a Peppermint Patty at your next Christmas Party, or place some “airplane bottles” in your jacket, which is perfect for making a quick to-go varient with the help of your local Starbucks. Either way, drink up!
The Peppermint Patty: Mix one shot of Peppermint Schnapps, 1/2 of a shot of Creme de Cacao, and Hot Chocolate in an Irish Coffee Glass. Garnish with whipped cream and any sort of peppermint candies as desired.
