Peppermint Patty Shots!

No party is complete without shots!! Even an innocent little vegan potluck can turn into a throwdown ho-down with a healthy dose of liquor. So in the final installment of my weekend holiday potluck series (see yesterday's post for a full recap of Saturday's vegan potluck at my house), I'll focus on the after-party.

Once our dinner and dessert plates were cleared, it was time to break out the peppermint schnapps. My co-worker Hannah couldn't make the potluck, but she did offer a fun suggestion for post-dinner libations — Peppermint Patty Shots!

These are so simple, and they really do taste like a peppermint patty ... well, an alcoholic peppermint patty.

Simply combine one to two ounces of peppermint schnapps with a little chocolate syrup in a shot glass. Mix well, and top with vegan whipped topping. I used Soy Whip, and we added the Christmas sprinkles for that special festive look. Cheers!

Those look ridonk. On the topic of amazing choco drinks, I'll offer my gay uncle's chocotini (gay men serve the best martinis, it's a fact)

1 oz vodka
1 oz creme de cacao
1 oz butter ripple schnapps
1-2 oz chocolate soymilk

I usually go heavier on the chocolate "milk" so it isn't so powerful, but yeah, best drink ever. Just don't drink too many... nothing makes a worse hangover than a creamy one!
