Big-Batch Irish Cream Hot Cocoa
Christmas without cocoa is like a tree without trimmings. This scratch-made version, enhanced with Irish cream and vodka, will get the merriment flowing in no time.
If there’s one thing lacking at our family holiday gatherings, it’s a good beverage. Sure, we’ve got plenty of wine to make everyone happy, but sometimes you want a cozy, festive drink to sip on while making merry. That’s where this Irish cream hot cocoa comes in.
I have yet to make this recipe for a holiday party, but I already know it’s going to be a hit. I mean, how can you go wrong with hot chocolate, enhanced with Irish cream liqueur? It’s a guaranteed way to make spirits even brighter and is perfect for serving a crowd.
You’ll need just a few simple ingredients for the cocoa: cocoa powder, sugar, milk, vanilla, salt and Irish cream liqueur. (You can also add vodka to the mix for extra merriment.)
