Hello everyone. Happy weekend. Another weekend – another holiday cocktail! Oh yeah, this season I’ve shared a few delicious ideas with you. And I will probably not stop. Sorry (Not too sorry) about that!

So many delicious ideas, right?

Snow Day

And this White Chocolate Cocktail is so appropriate today as it was snowing on Thursday, and it looks quite beautiful right now. Well, maybe not as beautiful as this cocktail :) I also want to show you few photos of our pets (and decorated house.) Daisy was brave and hilarious. But I needed to save her once or twice as as basically stuck in the snow!

I know many of you do not like overly sweet and light cocktails. So this one will be right up your street! It’s strong. Even though it includes white chocolate, it does not add too much of the sweetness, but it beautifully affects the consistency. So rich, so silky, so smooth, so dreamy. The warming spices like nutmeg and natural vanilla seeds add both subtle sweetness and cozy vibes. The flavour (And actually the texture, too) resemble eggnog, I think. Especially if you are using rum.

Once the pictures were taken and the cocktail disappeared, I realize the addition of orange liquor or even orange zest would have been wonderful, too! Some great ideas came to your mind too late, right?

This White Chocolate Cocktail will be perfect for your after-dinner cocktail, particularly if served with some delectate and not overly sweet cookies like shortbread. You can even try leaving some instead of milk for Santa (Just for a little exciting change! He will definitely appreciate)… and he might even need to have a sleepover in your house. Wouldn’t it be cool? LOL

So I hope you like this White Chocolate Cocktail, and you will give it a try soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.

Cheers to the weekend!

    What a stunning, creamy, irresistible holiday cocktail, Ben!

    Your animals are adorable and I’m so surprised that Daisy was game for going out in the snow. So often cats can’t even stand to get their feet wet!

    Haha – I can say with certainty that Santa would appreciate this cocktail more than a glass of milk! :-) This does sound quite delicious, Ben. Also, I love the lights on your house – very festive! We haven’t had a big snowfall yet this year, but I’m sure it’s not far away. I’ll need one of these cocktails for when that snow arrives!!
