It hasn't been too long since we posted our kid friendly hot chocolate, but we decided to elevate it even further for all of the adult themed holiday parties this year. With its nutty and creamy notes, the Irish cream whiskey plays perfectly well with the peppermint schnapps and hot chocolate.
1 cup hot chocolate, preferably RMR homemade
1 ½ oz Irish cream whiskey
¾ oz peppermint schnapps
1 oz spiced whip cream
1. Prepare either your homemade or packet hot chocolate, stir in the Irish cream whiskey and schnapps.
2. Serve warm and garnish with a peppermint stick, or peppermint bark, and a dollop of spiced whipped cream.
Adding spices or extracts to whipped cream I a great way to change the flavor combinations of an ordinary drink. Our spiced whip cream adds an extra zip to the initial creaminess of the cocktail.
Spiced Whip Cream
1 cup heavy cream
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp cayenne
1 tbsp sugar
