Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Whisk continuously as you add the chocolate chips until melted. Combine remaining milk. Once finished, fill up four mugs and share the fun! Top with whipped cream to really please your inner child.



Irish Coffee

  • Hot coffee
  • Irish whiskey
  • Creamer (optional)


This classic is easy to make and easier to enjoy. Simply pour your favorite coffee into each mug and add 1 ounce of your preferred Irish whiskey. If you need creamer, add it. Otherwise, top each mug with whipped cream and serve immediately.

2 oz Chairman´s Reserve Spiced Rum
0.25 oz Orange Curaçao
0.25 oz light brown Muscovado Sugar
