The Snuggler

Feeling tired and blue with no one to snuggle up to you?

longing for a snuggle

Longing for a cuddle….

Oh please. Don’t let that little face fool you. I maul that cat daily.

While thwarting off germs and sneezing my brains out this past weekend, I did the only thing I could do to make myself feel better. Drink liquor.


Two liquors per day keeps the doctor away! Wait, is that the right saying?

Here’s what you’ll need for The Snuggler:


Peppermint Schnapps

Hot Chocolate

tasty trio

Just a mug full of booze helps the medicine go down!

Start by carefully pouring a hearty amount of Kahlua in the bottom of a mug.


Follow with a heavy-handed glug (I seriously wait for the liquid to make a ‘glug’ sound) 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) with hot 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?).

Hot water

Upon completion, you will have to fight off those around you who want a sip of their own.

Whiska lickin' good!

Mmmm…I’d better have some so I don’t get Ma’s cold.

Then 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.

Let the mauling begin!

Let the mauling begin!

And ends up being quite a fun cold remedy.
