Normally, I’m a purist when it comes to a cup of hot chocolate. If I feel like imbibing, then my normal move is to add a splash of Irish cream in to my cup.
Not one to let me get into a food rut, Mr. Ginge urged me to try his favourite holiday time drink when I told him I had never tried it. While the “recipe” itself seems like a no-brainer, it was his description that sold me: ” You’ll like it. It’s like Christmas in a cup.” And I one sip, I knew exactly what he meant. It’s the perfect drink to snuggle up to on the couch, in a room lit only by the tree, while big, puffy Christmas snow falls outside.
Mr. Ginge’s Christmas in a Cup
makes 1 cup
- 1 cup of your favourite hot chocolate ( I won’t lie, I use instant mix, but this would work just as well with homemade, or straight from the coffee shop)
- 1 oz peppermint schnapps
- In to your cup of hot chocolate, stir in the peppermint schnapps. Snuggle in and enjoy.
