So you guys are totally going to think I’m a drunk for buying all the vodka. But I have an excuse! There’s a special rebate offer for buying three bottles!
So I have peppermint, raspberry and whipped cream… What can I do with them? Option One is a peppermint hot chocolate-inspired cocktail that can be served hot or cold.
Minty Vodka Hot Cocoa
3 oz peppermint vodka
2 oz chocolate vodka
1 oz whipped cream vodka
1 oz heavy cream or milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons hot chocolate mix (or 1 teaspoon cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon sugar)
Whipped cream, optional
Crushed and whole candy canes, optional
Combine first five ingredients.
Heat in microwave for 1 minute.
Stir and microwave for additional 30 seconds or until hot but not boiling.
Stir in hot cocoa mix.
Serve immediately or chill in freezer for 30 minutes if you prefer a cold drink.
Top with whipped cream and candy canes if desired.
