Mint Mocha Coffee Recipe

Hey friends! I’m coming at you today with an awesome coffee drink that also happens to be incredibly easy to make a mint mocha coffee. It’s full of chocolate, mint, and caffeine complete with instructions on how to turn this into a cocktail.

I recently received a sampling of New England Coffee’s holiday coffees – Mint Mocha, Gingerbread Cookie, and Eggnog. New England Coffee is still celebrating their centennial year and what better way to celebrate then with fun, festive flavors?! These flavors are a MUST for your holiday parties this year!

For today’s recipe, I chose to use the mint mocha and let me tell you, it’s really good. I used to make a version of this drink back in my coffee shop days. Some nights I couldn’t decide between coffee and hot cocoa, so I started combining the two together.

It’s a drink that I still make all the time but with different flavor variations. Sometimes caramel, sometimes coconut, sometimes just mocha. Today, it’s mint – on of my favorite variations of the drink. (Really, they’re all so good it’s hard to actually pick a true favorite.) Pair these with my peppermint mocha donuts and you’ve got yourself a winning combo.

Now here’s the important part: you can make this two ways. For an alcohol-free version, I use a splash of peppermint extract to bump up that mint flavor. For an adult version, I like to add a shot of Peppermint Schnapps. This is a really great drink for those chilly days when you need a little something special.

To make these even MORE special, top your peppermint mocha coffee off with a dollop of white chocolate ganache whipped cream, a drizzle of my favorite hot fudge sauce, a sprinkle of chopped peppermint candies, and top it off with a candy cane. You guys, it’s like Christmas in a mug.

I like to make this mint mocha coffee recipe when we’re decorating our Christmas tree. We like to make a nice afternoon of it – special drinks, gingerbread house decorating, and decorating our house and tree. It’s one of those fun traditions that the kids will have fond memories of for the holiday season.
