Cocktail of the Week: Hot Peppermint Mocha Shots with Coffee-mate

By Christabelle…

I have taken my UGGS out of the closet – it is officially cold here in NYC. To welcome the cooler weather, I have opted to cozy up with Hot Peppermint Mocha Shots and Javatini – delightful blends of chocolate, peppermint and vanilla and caramel flavors.  Easy to shake up and even more fun to enjoy, these fall favorites are a hit with everyone – especially when it is too cold outside to hit the happy hour scene…
