Holiday Cocktail Boozy Peppermint Hot Chocolate

For many of us, enjoying hot chocolate alone or together with friends and family is a holiday tradition. I love curling up in bed under a warm blanket and sipping on hot chocolate while watching holiday movies on tv. As much as I love the classic hot chocolate, I wanted to put a holiday and grown-up spin on this popular favorite so added a skosh of bourbon and peppermint schnapps.

I love love love having a signature Holiday cocktail. They are so fun to make and everyone feels so festive drinking them.
