Tips on Making it Super Delicious and Customizing for Taste
I’m not a big fan of really sweet drinks. So I left out the sugar completely. I also added a splash of half and half cream. I modified this recipe by reducing the hot chocolate mix to 1 teaspoon and did two drops of extract.
Make it your own and modify how you see fit.
If you want this peppermint coffee recipe to be as delicious as possible, you will want to grind your own beans and use a french press.
I love how coffee tastes when it’s made with freshly ground organic beans made in a french press. There is no coffee that tastes better. One of my favorite beans is Ethical Bean Coffee.
