I absolutely love this time of year. Without the holidays, it would be dreadfully difficult to get through a dark and rainy Portland winter. Everything I love about the holidays – the lights, the gifts, the homemade treats, the hot comforting drinks – it all gets me through each day with a warm smile on my face.

I absolutely love holiday themed coffee drinks. I look forward to them every year. What I don’t enjoy is paying over five bucks for a single drink. That’s why I was so excited when I found this International Delight Peppermint Mocha when I was shopping last week at Target! Being able to make my favorite drink at home just encourages me to slow down and enjoy the magical moments, whether I’m curled up by the fire with my loved ones or entertaining all of my favorite friends. And that’s really what the holidays are all about.

This coffee drink is really easy to make. I used one of those instant coffee packs, but instead of putting in the full 8 ounces of water that the instructions called for, I only used 4 ounces. Then, I steamed and frothed up some chocolate milk. Already sounds pretty good, right? Well, that’s a plain mocha right there. what I did was elevate the drink to holiday status by adding some of the Peppermint Mocha. Oh. My. YUM.

Top that with some whipped cream because, well, it wouldn’t be a holiday drink without some whipped cream, right?
