We all love the holiday's, right? Well, some more than others, I adore them—a time to get together and enjoy each other and, of course, eat and drink some fantastic food and beverages.  

Everyone seems to pull out all the stops for holiday parties and here is one you can use for your signature drink.  

Hot chocolate is a classic cozy winter beverage already, so why not dress it up with some white chocolate and peppermint? Just thinking about sipping this warm beverage by the cozy fire makes this mom super happy.

As always, be sure to make a virgin pot of hot chocolate for the kids. No one like to be left out, especially during the holidays.

Do you live where a lot of snow falls? First of all, I'm jealous! Snow is beautiful. Second, next time it snows curl up with a mug of this white hot chocolate peppermint cocktail and enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of watching the fresh snow fall. 

Ahh... Don't you feel more relaxed already? That seat by the window could be my happy place.
