What if Mrs. Claus came to town this year instead of Santa Claus? And she brought a cocktail of eggnog and peppermint Schnapps with her? I think it would be a done deal! Watch out Santa, there’s a new holiday cheer in town. The Mrs. Claus Cocktail is perfect for holiday sipping!

What is a Mrs. Claus Cocktail?
I am an absolute eggnog fanatic when the holiday season rolls around. You can only get it once a year! I may or may not have just bought two more cartons of it… I can’t help it! It’s just so smooth, creamy and tastes like Christmas. That’s basically what this Mrs. Claus Cocktail is, Christmas in a cup!
Even though eggnog is so fantastic on it’s own, the addition of white chocolate liqueur and peppermint Schnapps take it to a whole other level! The white chocolate liqueur makes it even more velvety smooth and the peppermint Schnapps adds just the right amount of holiday cheer. This is the perfect and easy cocktail to serve up this holiday season.
How to Serve this Cocktail
You can go completely Christmas Vacation style and have your guests sip on this cocktail with a glass moose mug, or serve it up in any cocktail glass or old fashioned mug that you like!
Create a batch ahead of time and serve this family-style, or have all the ingredients out and ready to go so everyone can whip up their own glass. How fun would it be to have a little cocktail station set up? Crushed candy canes and all!
Mrs. Claus doesn’t ask for cookies and milk, she wants her very own Mrs. Claus Cocktail. If you have some extra eggnog, let me know.
Pour yourself a glass of this Mrs. Claus Cocktail, sit back, relax and enjoy the Christmas lights!
