This Boozy Hot Chocolate is the Perfect Winter Warmer

You’ve never had a spiked hot chocolate quite like this one before. With a base of equal parts green chartreuse and peppermint schnapps, it’s herbaceous and delightfully minty underneath all that sweet, luxurious milk chocolate. It’s also a snap to make, and perfect for kicking back after a day on the slopes, or an hour of shoveling your walk, or a full day of staying indoors and watching football.

Here’s the complete recipe:
