Picky Pair: Holiday Cocktail

The start of the Holiday Season has begun and with it the Parties! We are always looking for a fun and delicious "signature" drink for each party we are associated with. It is important to make sure you offer something that can be made for everyone. Here is a fun and festive drink that is sure to please the children as well as the adults looking for a little holiday cheer!

{My {PP} is hosting her husband's Architectural firm's Holiday Party this weekend, with the cold weather and a cozy fire I'm sure something similar to this delicious treat {where children will be attending} will be served!!!}

This Peppermint Patty “hot toddy” from the Winter 2008 issue of The Nest looks absolutely de-lish! Perfect holiday “dessert cocktail” or signature drink idea for home parties like ornament/cookie exchanges.


1 oz. peppermint schnapps
½ oz. créme de cacao
1 tsp. créme de menthe
5 to 8 oz. hot chocolate
About 1 oz. whipped cream
Shaved chocolate

Pour liqueurs into a glass mug, fill with hot chocolate and top with whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate shavings. Now pull out a fresh mug and repeat the recipe for your spouse, friend, or SO (c’mon, this toddy is too tasty to share!).
