The holidays are fully upon us, particularly when Starbucks brings out the holiday cups- which just makes me feel cheery. I also love the saying on the cup "Let's Rediscover why we're best friends" - such as sweet sentiment. My sister and I both love the peppermint hot chocolate - which is one of those rare holiday blends that disappears shortly after New Year's Day. It's pretty much like drinking a peppermint patty, which is divine. One of my friend's makes his own version with peppermint schnapps - which pretty much is the best of both worlds, a warm drink that leaves you warm all over- exactly what the Christmas/ Holiday season should leave you with.
