3 Peppermint Schnapps Cocktails

There are many ways to spike hot chocolate, but this is one of our favorites. Inspired by the French tradition of sipping green chartreuse-laden hot chocolate after a day on the Alpine slopes, it includes both the herbaceous liqueur and a hit of peppermint schnapps for a deliciously minty kick. After a day of skiing (or working, or shoveling snow, or doing pretty much anything), you’ll want nothing more than a mugful of this indulgent drink.

We gave the classic Grasshopper a white Christmas makeover. Swapping out bright green crème de menthe for clear peppermint schnapps leaves you with a creamy, snowy-white sipper. Each sip is like a blast of winter air with a liquified Junior Mint finish. Serve this decadent tipple as a Christmas Eve digestif, and you’ll be dreaming of sugar plum fairies before your head even hits the pillow.

After a whirlwind night of global present delivery, chimney shimmying, and platter after platter of cookies, Saint Nick deserves a boozy pick-me-up. This spiked milkshake recipe is the perfect way to end the Christmas holiday. Made with peppermint schnapps and vanilla ice cream, this milkshake is layered with the bitter, icy frost of Branca Menta and the sweet sassafras notes of Coca-Cola.
