Peppermint Cocoa Float

Last year I created a peppermint cocktail and was very disappointed with it. It tasted like straight cough syrup and I dumped both glasses straight into the sink! I told myself I wouldn't play with peppermint this holiday cocktail season... but apparently I lied to myself and I am not sorry that I did. Because, the peppermint cocoa float is my favorite cocktail of the season and I saved it for last so that I could end this series with a BANG!

Ingredients (makes 1)

1 oz hot chocolate packet

2 shots vodka


In a shaker add hot chocolate and vodka over ice. Add 1 scoop of peppermint ice cream to a glass and strain hot chocolate mixture over the ice cream. Sprinkle on marshmallows and enjoy with a or a straw when the ice cream has melted.
