The first time I made this, I used regular vodka, vanilla extract and a little almond essence. It was so good, I decided to buy all the proper ingredients. Holy cow, what a night cap! Delicious! I also think the amount of alcohol was perfect. Thanks so much, Gordon! Read More

I didn't have any amaretto liqueur so maybe that's why this didn't taste good. I measured out the amount of vanilla vodka hot cocoa mix and hot milk but the vodka taste was overpowering. I even topped with whipped cream but it was still not that great. If I try this again I would only use a smidge of vodka. Read More

Maybe a little more chocolate needed - was really good though. I don't like drinks that you can taste the alcohol in it but this was very smooth and it was just tasty not alcohol-y. Read More

We made our hot chocolate from scratch (recipe on the Droste box)instead of instant so our cocoa was super yummie smooth and rich without any alcohol at all. We really liked the recipe here but thought the amaretto was a bit overpowering. After cutting the amount in half and keeping the vanilla vodka the same we liked it even better! Read More

We used the "Creamy Hot Cocoa" from this website (minus the half and half). Make sure that you remember that a shot is 2 ounces so you're putting a half a shot of each...some people think a shot is 1oz. Also make sure your mug is big enough or the booze can be overpowering. The TASTE is out of this world.;-) Read More

This is really good. I used Starbucks mint hot chocolate and soy milk. I didn't have any vanilla vodka so I just stirred a little vanilla extract in after I added the vodka and amaretto. Great afternoon treat in the winter! Read More

This was delicious!!! I have made it every year for our neighborhood Christmas round robing and always get requests for the recipe. I do however cut down on the amount of vodka as I do not like to taste liquor in my drinks. Read More

Very good but I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to tasting alcohol in my mixed drinks. I didn't like how strong the amaretto was so I tried again with half the amount. PERFECT! Topped with a dollop of French Vanilla Cool-Whip - yum! Thanks:) Read More
