The Nightcap Before Christmas Spiked Hot Chocolate | The Educated Barfly

This cocktail came about for a couple of reasons. First, Marius and I went to the Tikiland Trading event to look for christmasy tiki mugs and also because when we found the mug in this video, he came up with a killer cocktail name….ALL HAIL MARIUS! Then wit came down to choosing what cocktail we’d create to go in the mug, I started thinking about the plot of The Nightmare Before Christmas and then it hit me! What would Jack and his merry band of Halloweentown misfits drink on the eve of christmas after kidnapping Santa Claus, Hijacking the Holiday and putting their own spooky spin on it? Why hot chocolate of course! But of course it would be spiked wouldn’t it? Because they’d twist it with their own style! So help us ring this holiday in with style and drink a little spiked hot chocolate!
