It took Judy the Elf, in the movie Santa Clause, 1200 years to perfect her cocoa recipe. Now, that’s some cocoa I wanna try, but alas, she didn’t share her recipe, but she did give us some little secrets to her success:
“Not too hot, eeeeextra chocolate, shaken not stirred.”
I don’t know about you, but that sounds like one heck of a cocktail, and since Scott Calvin asked for his drink to be stiff, I have a sneaky suspicion there’s more than just chocolate in that yummy cocoa.
Even Toy Santa in Santa Clause 2 is quoted saying, “Ohhh woooaaah…I think Santa feels a little buzz!”
So we’re making Santa’s Spiked Cocoa like we think it’s really made. We hope you enjoy this week’s Disney Inspired Cocktail!
