Smooth Godiva chocolate liqueur, Absolut vodka, and 101 Thunder peppermint schnapps blend together beautifully in this Peppermint Kiss Cocktail. In fact, it may actually be a little bit too smooth and delicious. This is one of those drinks that goes down easy and then kicks your butt when you least expect it…..

I made this cocktail last January for a contributor post for White Lights on Wednesday…as a Valentine’s cocktail…..

but I could not find mint truffle Hershey’s Kisses. I had to substitute caramel filled, which worked just fine, but wasn’t perfect. Guess what I found last week at Target? I just had to remake this cocktail with a more Christmasy theme and take new photos. I know, I know, the life of a blogger can be difficult sometimes! 😉

How to make a Peppermint Kiss Cocktail:

Start by sticking a toothpick {or appetizer pick} into the bottom of each Kiss…..

Place the lid on the shaker and shake well to combine. Divide between 2 small glasses and serve garnished with the Kiss toothpicks…..

The toothpick keeps the Kisses from sinking to the bottom.

As always, use good quality spirits {it really does make a difference}. Drink responsibly, and never ever try to do anything important after consuming one of these cocktails, lol  I took these photos while waiting for the Thanksgiving turkey to cook. Lets just say that it is a miracle that I remembered to prepare the rest of the meal, these babies are potent! 😉

  1. I want your cocktail shaker.

    I thought to myself, I need to make a list of items to buy to make this drink…but the only things I didn’t have were the mint truffle kisses. And your cocktail shaker.

    Treasure Box Tuesday, blah, blah blah, now where do I get the cocktail shaker? 😀

    1. I’m sorry Joy, I bought that shaker on ebay a few years ago. It is vintage and cost a small fortune. Now I will make sure to lock my doors so it doesn’t walk away in the middle of the night. 😉 If I come across another one, I will let you know. 🙂
