This winter, though not officially winter yet, but since some of my favorite ski resorts have already opened, I thought I'd toast the start of a great 2015/2016 ski season with a few of my favorite apres ski drinks. Alcoholic of course!
Let's start with JACK FROST. This drink is more tropical than I'd normally imbibe in after a day on the slopes, but it reminds me of a big snowflake so I just can't resist!
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup blue curaçao
- 1/2 cup light rum or vodka
- 1/2 cup cream of coconut
- Crushed ice
Next, is definitely something I drink and love, but you gotta watch out for this one, it'll sneak up on you! Rumple Minze is DELICIOUS 100 proof peppermint schnapps. Yum!
Rumple Minze Peppermint Schnapps with Hot Chocolate
- Large mug
- Make your favorite hot chocolate
- Add 1 oz (or more to taste) Rumple Minze
- Top with whip cream (lots!)
- Add crushed candy cane pieces (if desired)
Yes, you can add marshmallows!
