Cuppa Good Cheer and the loss of days

I must apologize!!!  It really is Monday!!!!  I came home from work thinking it was Friday…you see it was the first day back to work and yet the last day for the holidays, I became confused and posted the following :

😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

Well I just realized that it is Friday,  and had posted a vegan cookie recipe for Meatless Monday, thinking it was Monday of course, and well it turns out it is Friday and I should have posted something a little less wholesome than a vegan cookie recipe…just lost track of the days this week. 😀

I will blame the Cuppa Good Cheer I had last night,


How could I resist?

What’s in a Cuppa Good Cheer you ask?

  • 1.5 oz. SKYY Infusions Cherry
  • 0.5 oz. White Creme de Cacao
  • 4 oz. Hot Cocoa
  • 1 oz. Half ‘n Half
  • Whipped Cream
  • Maraschino Cherry

How do you mix it all together?

Combine all ingredients into a holiday mug and top with whipped cream, red sprinkles and a Maraschino Cherry.

Whether you anticipate a White Christmas or a California Endless Summer, we all snuggle up with loved ones and a cup of warm hot cocoa at least once during the holiday season.  Thick, frothy and decadent, a Cuppa Good Cheer featuring SKYY Infusions Cherry is a mature version of a holiday favorite and certain to keep spirits bright.


Ms.Drive -Thru and the Peppermint tea

My friend Ms. Paula 🙂 told me about a yummy drink recipe for Hot Chocolate.

Ms. Paula was at the McDonalds Drive-thru ordering a Mocha, she started a conversation with Ms. Drive-thru about hot chocolate, mochas, cappuccino. Ms Paula can start up a conversation with anyone anywhere 🙂

Ms Drive-Thru  told her she adds a peppermint tea bag to her Hot Chocolate!!! Presto chango you’ve got  Mint chocolate hot chocolate Who’d a thunk it?  Can’t wait to try it.

I usually put a candy cane or cayenne pepper in mine.

Other yummy things to add to hot chocolate :

Vodka, Amarula, Whiskey, Fireball Whiskey are nice addition too for a little extra warm up.
