Hosting a Holiday Party? 5 Festive Cocktails to Try


Peppermint Schnapps Hot Chocolate (recipe serves six)

1 qt milk (you can use any type of milk—skim, whole—it’s your choice)
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate or 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
6 ounces peppermint schnapps
whipped cream
6 peppermint stick candy


Heat one cup of the milk in a medium saucepan over low heat.
Add chocolate and stir until melted.
Once melted, increase heat to medium and add the rest of the milk—still stirring. Do not bring to a boil.
Serve in small cups with (1 1/2 oz—or to your liking) of peppermint schnapps and whipped cream.
Add a peppermint stick.
