Bourbon Hot Chocolate

  • Hot Chocolate (Use whole milk. Water is for quitters.)
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • 1.5 oz bourbon
  • 0.5 oz peppermint schnapps
  • Whipped cream
  • Dark cocoa for garnish

Here are some pointers:
1. If you have some real drinkers on their way, keep the bottle ready and pour a little extra in their drink. Don’t over-pour your whiskey in the base hot cocoa and ruin it for the other people who aren’t used to drinking.

2. Get your cheese grater out and grate some dark cocoa into a little bowl. Keep a soup spoon nearby so people can put it on top of their whipped cream. It keeps their fingers out of the community garnish and while it doesn’t add much to the flavor it looks nice and makes people happy.

3. Don’t overdo the peppermint. It’s very potent and if you go any higher with the ratio here you’ll kill all the other flavors.
