Thirsty Thursday: Choco Mocha Mint Cocktail
It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.
‘Tis the season for a warm chocolatey drink spiked with some Christmas spirit! The holidays (and all those ugly-sweater Christmas parties) really wouldn’t be complete without some festive libations. So put on your puffy-painted sweater and join in the reindeer games by whipping up this Choco Mocha Mint Cocktail. Think of it as Irish coffee’s holly-jolly cousin.
Chocolate liqueur and peppermint schnapps add a touch of sweetness to this warming coffee-based cocktail. Top with a generous dollop of whipped cream, and adorn with crushed candy canes or a fresh mint leaf for the perfect festive touch.
Here’s to some holiday cheer! Bottoms up, folks!

- 1/2 ounce peppermint schnapps
- 4 to 6 ounces hot coffee
