Surprisingly, my all time favourite holiday drink is peppermint white hot chocolate. Specifically, the one from Tim Hortons which they call “Candy Cane White Hot Chocolate”. This drink is the complete opposite of what I usually reach for when craving for a hot beverage – plain green or oolong tea (no fancy flavours here).
I am baffled as to why I actually like this beverage because it is nothing like having a cup of plain tea. I generally don’t drink anything that is rich and overly sweet but that is exactly what this drink is. It taste like sweet milk with subtle hints of coconut with a slight peppermint taste. As odd as my description sounds, I genuinely enjoy having a small cup of this sweet concoction. It gives me Christmas vibes and makes me feel warm and cheery. It must be the peppermint that is making me feel this way because I associate it with Christmas.
