You Need


    • Combine the cacao powder with 1 tablespoon of warm water. Whisk to combine, until there are no lumps.
    • In a mason jar with lid or cocktail shaker add all ingredients. Shake to combine. 
    • Add ice, and shake vigorously. 
    • This makes about 4-5 small shots.
    Peppermint flavor is not the same thing as peppermint extract. Flavorings, (vanilla flavor, peppermint flavor, etc) have artificial ingredients and additives. Pure extracts are pure. Peppermint extract contains only peppermint, and alcohol.


To make this into a drink instead of a shot, double all ingredients except for the alcohol. Serve in a tall glass with lots of ice!
