 On the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…Boozy Frozen Hot Chocolate cocktails, two different ways!

Twelve drummers drumming?!  After twelve straight days of cocktails, it would take more than twelve drummers drumming to get me out of bed, but fortunately, I have been sipping in moderation and I suggest you do too. If you are going to have anyone Christmas cocktail this holiday season, these Boozy Frozen Hot Chocolate cocktails would be it…or the Rings of Gold cocktail…or the Espresso Milk Punch…or….you get the idea.

All of these Twelve Days of Christmas cocktails are wonderful to make, drink, and share, but let’s focus on these two scrumptious Boozy Frozen Hot Cocoa cocktails.  Did you notice that in the martini glasses, with the garnishes, they look like drums (and drumsticks)?  See what I did there?

Boozy Frozen Hot Chocolate

Some people like peppermint.  Others, like me, do not.  I made these cocktails in two different ways to satisfy everyone’s tastes, as well as to celebrate the two most unique spice tastes of the season, mint and cinnamon.  Frozen hot chocolate is exactly as it sounds, but I have found most recipes consisting of hot cocoa mix, milk, and ice to be lacking in chocolate (there is never enough chocolate!!)  so I made a few adjustments.  I think you will agree this is so much more decadent!
