Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Peppermint Schnapps Hot Cocoa

December 06, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there!

Frank and I are trying to get ourselves in the holiday spirit and off Santa's naughty list. We found ourselves thinking about last year's boozy hot chocolate (click here) and wanted to remix it! We purchased some peppermint schnapps which came in a scratch and sniff bottle (how fun!?) to make in our opinion the best flavor combo ever... mint and chocolate!  We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @staynfocusimages

This makes 2-4 drinks (depending on size of your mugs). Let's get started!


Here's what you need:

For Drink
1 Quart Milk
6 oz. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
1.5 oz. Peppermint Schnapps (per serving)

For Garnish
Have fun with this.
Chocolate and peppermint sticks
Marshmallows (we skewered ours with a sprig of rosemary)



You will also need, 1 medium-large sauce pans, large stirring spoon and  heat safe mugs. 


Let's Make the Drink!

  1. Heat 1 cup of  milk in a medium saucepan over low heat.
  2. Add chocolate, stirring constantly, until melted.
  3. When the chocolate has melted, increase heat to medium and add the remainder of the milk while whisking rapidly. Do not allow to boil.
  4. In your favorite mug, add 1.5 oz of peppermint schnapps.
  5. Top with your freshly made hot cocoa.
  6. Garnish with your peppermint sticks, marshmallows and sprinkles.
  7. Find a cozy blanket to curl up in and enjoy!!
