12 Days of Cocktails: Andes Mint HotChata

There’s something so cozy about this time of year. Whether it’s the glow of the lights on the Christmas tree, a belly full of comfort food, or simply reliving the magic of the season through the eyes of our littles, the holiday season makes us feel oh-so fuzzy and warm. Or, perhaps it’s just the boozy hot chocolate we’ve been sipping?

On our 5th Day of Cocktails, we are bringing you a boozy mint spiked hot chocolate made with RumChata. Our Andes Mint HotChata will warm you in no time!

Warning! This stuff is DEADLY. It may taste innocent, but there’s a lot of booze in there! To ensure none of it burns off in the making of this hot cocoa, make sure you never bring your mixture to a boil after you’ve added your alcohol. Just keep it at a low temperature until it’s warmed to your liking.
