Godiva white chocolate liqueur with swirls of peppermint schnapps – for those who prefer to drink their dessert.

I’m an equal opportunity dessert consumer. And although I’m not a huge fan of sugary sweet libations, I can certainly entertain one of these martinis in lieu of dessert. Served chilled, this decadent white chocolate drink with its burst of peppermint goodness is like winter wonderland in a glass.

As it is my first full-fledged winter season in the east coast, I’ve been doing my snow dance to the snowstorm gods. But to no avail, NYC has yet to see white powder on our sidewalks as of today. Rumor has it though, that a winter storm is bound for Manhattan this weekend. I’ll keep my fingers crossed but until now, I’ll settle for this drinkable snow storm.

    all right, i’ll be honest–i’m not a big drinker. however, i would consume so many of these in such little time that i’d probably require a hospital stay, or at the very least, a stomach-pumping. it sounds AMAZING–white chocolate and peppermint is quite possibly my favorite dessert pairing. brilliant.

    @Deborah: I hope you found the Godiva white chocolate liqueur. I had a bit of a scavenger hunt in Manhattan when I came looking for my own bottle. I ducked into every wine and liquor shop on my way home 20 blocks away. When I was at my wit’s end, I finally found the Godiva white chocolate liqueur at the shop right next door to our apartment. Naturally.

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

  • Dhale Says:

    @Natasha: It’s even more perfect now that it finally snowed A LOT in NYC this weekend! Now I can enjoy this winter wonderland drink as I admire the winter wonderland outside our window :)

    @Joy: My boyfriend and I have been drinking quite a few of these lately. We started adding espresso to it for a nice little caffeine kick!
