Peppermint Hot Chocolate

This hot chocolate recipe is rich, creamy and spiked with peppermint-infused bourbon to warm you from the inside out.

Everyone needs a fantastic hot chocolate recipe up their sleeve at this time of year.  This recipe is inspired by the peppermint schnapps hot chocolate of the après-ski scene, but uses our peppermint bourbon instead:

  1. Add 30ml of peppermint-infused bourbon to a mug (or heat-proof glass).
  2. Top with hot chocolate.
  3. Add a dash of Chartreuse for a richer, more complex, floral flavour.

Peppermint Bourbon (200ml) – Combine four teaspoons of peppermint tea in 200ml of bourbon and leave to infuse for one hour.  Strain out the solids and store in a sterile bottle.
