Hungry Girl made my day (it doesn’t take a lot) by posting two new Winter Cocktails recipes, one for a Winter Wonderland Peppermintini and the other for a Spiked Almond Joy Hot Cocoa.

Since it’s beginning to snow where I live, these winter cocktails sound great and will be thoroughly enjoyed. Visit Hungry Girl for additional low calorie cocktails recipes.

Winter Cocktails #1: Winter Wonderland Peppermintini


Ingredients:

Directions:
Place powdered creamer and sweetener in a glass. Add 1/4 cup warm water and stir to dissolve.

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add creamer mixture, vodka, and peppermint extract. Cover and shake well, until mixture is cold.
Strain into a martini glass. If you like, garnish with a candy cane leaning jauntily on the rim.

    In your favorite mug, prepare cocoa with 3/4 cup hot water according to package instructions. Add the rum and almond extract. (Remember, just one DROP of extract!) Stir and, if you like, top with a generous squirt of Reddi-wip. Enjoy, preferably wrapped in a blanket by a roaring fire.
