Ingredients For This Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cocktail:

How To Make A Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cocktail?

  • Place the chocolate, sugar, cocoa powder, instant coffee granules, and 1 cup milk in a small sauce pot. Warm over medium heat and stir until the chocolate has melted into the milk. Once smooth, remove from heat. Do not let the mixture boil.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into a blender. Add the remaining milk to the blender, along with the vanilla extract, peppermint vodka and ice. Cover and blend until very smooth.

Are There Other Options For The Milk?

For this dish, you can use other types of milk. If you want to maintain the ultra-creaminess of this beverage, just be sure to stick with thicker milk substitutes. Cans of coconut milk, cashew milk, oat milk, and soy milk (regular coconut milk is not as creamy as the canned variety).

Why Use Instant Coffee?

The flavor of the chocolate is enhanced by the instant coffee. If you don’t like coffee or don’t want caffeine late in the day, you can omit it.

Can I Prepare This Ahead Of Time And Place In The Freezer?

I don’t advise preparing this in advance. Although you can garnish your glass with chocolate, like I did before, if you combine this drink too soon and freeze it, the chocolate will harden. Therefore, prepare and freeze the glasses in advance, then blend the drink when you’re ready to drink it.
