Mocktail of the month (December)

One of my absolute favorite cocktails to drink when I wanted to be fancy around the holiday season was a chocolate martini. I called it my “Big Girl Chocolate Milk.” I have a lot of fond memories tied to those martinis because those were drinks I could and would actually sip and enjoy with close friends and family.

So how can I get my fix without all the mind-altering additives? Well, by classing up chocolate milk, of course!

This month’s tasty treat is one that my kids (and husband) seriously gulp down! So delish and known as a Mint Chocolate Mocktini!ย

Mint Chocolate Mocktini

(Makes 4 servings)

  • 38 oz of dark chocolate squares
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla syrup
  • 7 Andes mints, crushed

  1. Pour the milk into a small saucepan. Heat and stir (to keep from burning the bottom). Before the milk starts to boil, add the chocolate squares. Continue stirring until chocolate is completely melted.

  3. Pour half the milk into a shaker filled with ice. Add 1 Tbsp of vanilla syrup, cover and shake.
  4. Pour milk mixture into two glasses and top with half of the crushed Andes mints.
  5. Cheers and enjoy!
