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:
- Add 30ml of peppermint-infused bourbon to a mug (or heat-proof glass).
- Top with hot chocolate.
- 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.
