Winter weather got you feeling tired and blue with no one to nuzzle up to?
Between pouring hot water on frozen car doors and shivering my ass off in the unusually fridgid Tennessee weather trying to get my vehicle to start this past weekend, I did the only thing I could do to keep myself warm.
Drink liquor. Warm liquor.
I’m sure you’re all shocked that I have other methods than just my thermostat to ward off the chilly temps. My stay warm cocktail basically gussies up bland hot chocolate (I know, I know, I’m a genius).
Allow me to introduce you to ….
Here’s what you’ll need for this belly heating treat:
Start by carefully pouring a hearty amount of Kahlua into the mug.
Follow with a heavy-handed glug (I seriously wait for the liquid to make a gulping sound as it escapes the bottle) of peppermint schnapps.
Mix a package of hot chocolate (I selected diet hot chocolate, so as not to feel guilty about the generous amount of liquor included in my concoction – and then I call it The Skinny Snuggler) with boiling water into your mug. The true recipe calls for one part Kahlua, one part Peppermint Schnapps and two parts hot chocolate but now that’s not any fun, is it?
Upon completion, you will have to fight off those around you who want a sip (or lick) of their own.
So you’ll need to make a batch big enough for sharing – because sharing is caring, isn’t it?
Mix. Drink. Share. Repeat. Mix. Drink. Share. Repeat. Mix. Drink. Share. Repeat.
This method will lead to some serious snuggling.
And ends up being quite a fun cold weather remedy.
