Midnight Snowstorm


Midnight Snowstorm Cocktail

The Midnight Snowstorm adds a little mint to your adult hot chocolate routine.

This recipe for a Midnight Snowstorm is very similar to a Hot Peppermint Patty, using crème de menthe in place of the harsher peppermint schnapps. This substitution leaves the minty, chocolate flavor but does so in a very smooth, creamy way.

Use white crème de menthe inside the drink and add green crème de menthe on top of the whipped cream for a little color.

Prep Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 6 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail



  1. Pour white crème de menthe and hot chocolate into an Irish coffee glass.
  2. Top with whipped cream.
  3. Drizzle the green crème de menthe on top.
