While many customers claim chocolate goes best with peanut butter, there’s something to be said for the chocolate-mint combo.

This creamy and cooling drink is a phenomenal way to cap off your day. Plus, with the extra dose of Tribe CBD oil, you’re bound to feel relaxed in a flash.
CBD Peppermint Patty Cocktail Recipe
We’ll be honest: there’s no official recipe for the Peppermint Patty cocktail. So, even though we’re going to share recommendations below, please keep in mind they’re just suggestions. You should feel comfortable tinkering with this recipe’s ingredients till you find what works for you.
For instance, some people like to swap out crème de cacao for chocolate-infused vodka. A few recipes also use the fancy-sounding crème de menthe rather than peppermint schnapps.
As for the milk ingredient, you could consider a cream liqueur rather than heavy cream. Heck, you could even go with a dairy alternative if you’re not “mad” for milk.
As you could see, there’s plenty of room for experimentation with this cocktail. Please let us know what your perfect Peppermint Patty recipe is on social media!

- ½ oz heavy cream
- ½ oz peppermint schnapps

Typically, when you see ads for a peppermint patty, manufacturers always stress this candy’s “cooling” properties. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t add some heat to this minty treat!
No, we’re not talking about adding cayenne to this cocktail (although spicy chocolate is a real thing). Instead, we’d recommend adding a nip of peppermint schnapps and crème de cacao to your next mug of hot chocolate. Be sure to keep this trick in mind at your next Christmas party!
