Hot Chocolate Shot is the second of our Twelve Shots of Christmas! Jamie and I have come up with twelve unique holiday themed shots which can be made easily with alcohol you can buy in small shooters and inexpensive mixers.

The hot chocolate shot mixes the milk of your choice (we used almond milk), chocolate and sweet cake vodka. I thought it would be weird. Then I realized it’s very similar to the recipe for a White Russian, which is milk, coffee liquer and vodka. It turned out really great.
