‘Tis the season to eat, drink, and be merry! What better way to wow your guests this holiday season than with a cocktail that’s infused with everyone’s favorites… hot chocolate, vodka, and Christmas cheer! Whether you’re hosting a festive gathering or simply craving a cozy nightcap, this refreshing twist on a classic favorite is sure to get everyone into the holiday spirit. 

To combine the rich, velvety flavors of hot cocoa with the chill of a well-crafted martini, I merged my very favorite Williams Sonoma Hot Chocolate, vodka, and two liqueurs. Garnish with a chocolate and crushed candy cane rim for a jolly good time! Cheers to the holiday season friends, enjoy!
