Staying in for the night? Curl up by the fire and ring in the New Year with two best friends: whiskey and espresso. These bold sips marry together for the perfect match in this chocolate topped coffee drink.

Tipsy Mochaccino with Mocha Whipped Cream

Serves 2

Directions: Whisk milk, sugar, cocoa powder, espresso in a saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil. Add whiskey last. Pour into mugs. Top with mocha whipped cream & sprinkles.

Mocha Whipped Cream Directions: Add cream, cocoa, coffee powder & sweetener to a stand mixer bowl. Whisk on low for a few minutes until the cream starts to thicken. As it thickens increase the speed slightly, and then to maximum speed. Whip until you have nice peaks. Sweeten more to taste if necessary.
