‘Tis the season to be jolly-and caffeinated. If you want your peppermint mocha to give you a little more than an energy jolt, these booze recommendations are for you.
I’ve had some peppermint schnapps in my hot chocolate before, but never thought to warm up with a spiked flavored coffee beverage. Here are some of the liquors and liqueurs Ananda Eidelstein at The Kitchn recommends for your lattes and mochas:
- Eggnog latte: Go with Irish whiskey or a dark rum.
- Peppermint mocha: Go with Bailey’s Irish Cream or some marshmallow flavored vodka.
- Gingerbread latte: Go with spiced rum or Kahlua.
Before you go walking around to look at the pretty Christmas lights, consider fighting off the cold with a drink that warms you up in two ways. You can find more great spiking recommendations at the link below.
