Hot Candy Cane at

I have already created my Christmas cocktail for the holiday season, the Aviation Santa Sighting. However, you also need a hot seasonal drink for those cold winter days. Enter the Hot Candy Cane.

I wanted a hot drink that wasn’t the normal sweet kids drink. I love hot chocolate and I love marshmallows in it but I wanted something with an adult kick.

I mixed Fireball Whisky and Peppermint Schnapps to hot chocolate, threw in marshmallows and a candy cane.

The Verdict

This was just what I wanted. It has the satisfying comfort of hot chocolate with a touch of fire from the Fireball Whisky. The peppermint schnapps and the candy cane give it a Christmas taste. This is not a kids hot chocolate. They don’t deserve it!
