I love Christmas break. I have no obligations. I can stay home in my pajamas as much as I want. I can eat muffins and peanut butter toast any time I want. And I get so much of my own work done. Work that I love. Except dishes. I still hate dishes.

I think it’s high time I win the lottery and become a lady of leisure. This real job nonsense is for the birds. More 

I used my Christmas break epic free time to make you a cheeky little cocktail for your holiday festivities. This Chocolate Candy Cane Cocktail is sweet, chocolaty, and potent. We’re mixing up three spirits with some chocolate milk because we’re grown ups, but we still like to have fun.

And I’m not saying you have to give yourself a candy cane stir stick, but I can’t really think of a good reason why you wouldn’t. Whipped cream and cocoa powder are also optional, but would it really be Christmas without it. 

Merry Christmas, friends. Get real merry with a Chocolate Candy Cane Cocktail in hand. It’s gonna be awesome.
