What Kind of Schnapps Should I Use?

For the uninitiated, Schnapps is a sort of grain liquor used for giving your favorite cocktails an alcohol and flavor infused kick. These spirits can be distilled with just about anything, mainly spices, fruits and syrups.

Our recipe calls for a typical peppermint schnapps which is easy enough to find at your local grocery store, or liquor vendor! This provides a lovely seasonal touch. And, it serves as a compliment to the mint flavored filling of an Andes mint.

Choose the Right Hot Chocolate Mix

There’s two main components to our full-bodied cup of boozy hot chocolate here: mint chocolate, and hot chocolate! Combining these delicious treats makes for one seriously addictive drink.

Part of making alcohol-infused hot chocolate drinks is choosing the right mix! There’s a ton out there, and your local grocery store probably has a whole shelf dedicated to them! That being said, we have find it’s made best with a rich and creamy hot chocolate mix. That way, it’s heavy enough to carry the boozy taste of the peppermint schnapps while complimenting the minty taste.

I personally recommend Nestle’s classic rich milk chocolate mix.
