Peppermint Mocha

Yield: 1 Serving

Inspired by a recipe from I switched from espresso to regular coffee and substituted organic sugar and my homemade whip cream.


  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 tablespoons powdered cocoa - run it through a sifter or fine wire strainer to remove lumps
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 1/2 cup coffee
  • 1 1/2 cups hot milk
  • a dollop of fresh whip cream
  • Dash of cinnamon


  1. In a small saucepan, stir together the water and sugar, bringing to a rolling boill, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Reduce heat to a low, add the peppermint extract, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. In a large mug add the cocoa and water and mix together until a creamy paste forms.
  4. Add the coffee, 1 1/2 teaspoon of the peppermint simple syrup, and stir to mix.
  5. Top the mug off with the hot milk and stir.
  6. Top with fresh whip cream and cinnamon.
