Christmas Hot Cocoa

This cocoa is a little different than most. Not only does it have peppermint in it, but it has a hint of Kahlua and vodka. Don't worry, I won't tell if you won't tell.

It’s officially Christmas season!

You have no idea how happy I really am about this!

I rushed to make something that felt like Christmas as soon as the calendar said December.

Do you get like that?

Are you completely into the Christmas season or are you a Scrooge?

G is kind of a Scrooge, I have been excitedly preparing for Christmas and listening to Christmas music and he’s just like ‘bah humbug, it’s too early.’

Do you think that Christmas comes too early every year?

I do think that it’s kind of crazy to have Christmas things out before Thanksgiving, but once Thanksgiving is over all bets are off.

One of my favorite flavors of the season is peppermint or candy canes.

I used to steal the candy canes off of our Christmas tree and eat them, shh don’t tell my mom.  I’m pretty sure she already knew anyway.

I wanted to come up with an AfterDark drink that really brought together everything good about Christmas and winter.

It has to be warm, minty, chocolatey, and most of all it has to have booze, I mean it is AfterDark after all.

The combination that I came up with was an alcohol filled, minty, hot cocoa.

It’s perfect for laying beside the fire, warming up, and trying to get into the holiday spirit.
