The holidays are all about spending time with family and friends, gathering ’round the fire, the piano — or, let’s be honest, the TV — and enjoying each others company. But, there is one little thing that can really kick things up a notch (and no, we’re not talking about grandma’s famous peanut brittle, even though that stuff is delicious). Yup, you guessed it: we’re talking about a festive, adult-approved libation!
You may have a few party drinks up your sleeve already, but we’d like to suggest the addition of this palatable beverage to your drink-making arsenal.
Merri-Mint Moonshine Mocha
What could be better on a cold day than a warm and toasty cocktail? Cue the “Merri-Mint Moonshine Mocha”, which combines moonshine, coffee, chocolate, and mint. And you know it wouldn’t be complete without a bit of whipped cream on top. We’ll take extra whipped cream, if you please. This recipe comes from Old Forge Distillery, which specializes in moonshine. Yes, moonshine!
What you need:
- 3/4 oz of Coffee Moonshine
- 3/4 oz. Chocolate Moonshine
- 1/2 oz. Crème de Menthe
- 4-6 oz. Hot Coffee
- Whipped Cream
Combine all the liquid ingredients and stir well. Top with whipped cream and, if you please, a sprig of mint or crushed peppermint candy.
