Thirsty Thursdays: Irish Winter & Adult Hot Chocolate

21 Jan

So it looks like winter isn’t leaving anytime soon. So we decided to give you guys some drinks that are best enjoyed during the winter time!

Irish Winter

1 part Kahlúa Coffee Cream
1 part Jameson Irish Whiskey
Freshly brewed coffee
Whipped cream for garnish

Directions:

  1. Combine ingredients in a mug or Irish coffee glass.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Top with whipped cream.
Tips
This drink is essentially a subtle transformation of Irish Coffee. Adding the Kahlúa brings a unique creaminess to the base of the drink.

Adult Hot Chocolate

2 oz peppermint schnapps
Hot Chocolate
Whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pour the schnapps into a mug or Irish coffee glass.
  2. Fill with hot chocolate.
  3. Stir well
  4. Optionally, top with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles or shaved chocolate.
Tips
One garnish I find almost essential for this drink around the holidays are those mini candy canes. Just hang one on the side of the glass and allow it to melt in the warmth for an even more minty touch.
If you want to learn how to make a drink, ask for it on the comments below and we’ll get that recipe up for you guys. Until next time, cheers!

    I would suggest Ice 101 for the peppermint schnapps and you can definitely use more than 2 ounces. You can pretty make a 50/50 with those bad boys, it’ll get you drunk!

      I would also add some bailey’s to the irish coffee drink, the combo of the three is delicious.

        Maybe you should just write your own drink on here.

    Virginia Lightning Corn Whiskey

    Ingredients:
    Virginia Lightning Corn Whiskey

    Directions:
    1.) Take bottle of Virginia Lightning Corn Whiskey left by someone, probably homeless or stupid (maybe both), at your house
    2.) Pour hastily into glass
    3.) Drink as fast as you can
    4.) Pray for death

    Perfect for a cold winter night!
