I'm not sure what I like more about this holiday drink: its taste or its name. I have a mid-December birthday, so I'm always trying to think of festive winter drinks to make for my parties. This year I made what's known as a Snuggler, aka spiked hot chocolate. I used a package of Swiss Miss and DeKuyper peppermint schnapps. For every five ounces of hot chocolate, use one ounce of the schnapps (which can be adjusted depending on how strong you want it).

The drink is essentially hot chocolate with a subtle, spicy peppermint accent. You can also make it fun by adding a toppings bar, complete with mini-marshmallows, chocolate chips, and whipped cream. To spice it up, you can use Whipped Lightning, a fairly new alcohol-infused whipped cream.

Cheers to a happy, fun-filled holiday season!
