I made a chai/maple/cinnamon/cocoa syrup today. Added a splash of lemon juice and some bourbon for a much more interesting take on a hot toddy.
Mint vodka? I can take that if you don't wanna drink it I used to love that stuff.I have a few bottles of mint vodka in my cupboard that's too nasty to drink it on its own. It would probably work in a hot cocoa but something about hot and alcohol just doesn't resonate with me even if it's winter and I'm freezing my ass off and there's is no way I'm turning the heat on because of the price of electricity atm.

If it's plain mint vodka, it goes super well with coffee. I used to make huge bottles of iced coffee out of it and bring when I went out. Annoyingly they've discontinued the best one, Minttu, which you could get in 60% and 80% varieties... The 80% one in particular was great to mix with coffee. The brand still exists but they only make the peppermint version these days, and that just doesn't really mix with anything... And the Koskenkorva mint vodka just isn't as good.
Yeah, original Minttu is great. I used to drink that shit raw when I was younger. But what I have now is made by Leijona and it's fucking terrible.
Yeah, that's pretty disgusting Everything made by Leijona is generally pretty bad. The only way to drink those was always to make really mild cocktails out of it to cover it up. I used to make almost 50/50 ES-Tapio and that was drinkable because the ES generally covers everything pretty well, but with Leijona you had to be really careful not to put more than maybe 1/5 of it or it would be undrinkable.
Sheesh, speaking of "mild cocktails". At our company x-mas party someone ordered the ingredients for vodka-batterys to the booth we were hanging out in... I don't know who specified how much of what they should bring, but they brought a .70 bottle of some cheap Russian vodka and two .33 cans of battery Nice ratio... Oh well, we drank it anyway, though I gotta admit I had to flush the last drops down with champagne...
