Peppermint Bark Brownies

From the award-winning Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog (Gold Medal at 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition) and Peppermint Bark (Double Gold Medal at 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition) to the newest release of Salted Caramel (Gold at the Beverage Testing Institute, Platinum at the SIP Awards), there’s a festive option for all types of cold-weather sipping, as well as delicious and decadent desserts.

America’s Favorite Eggnog

Next to Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You, there’s nothing quite as festive as Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog. It’s a delicious, easy cocktail for holiday entertaining, as it only needs to be poured over ice to enjoy. Made with fresh, locally sourced dairy cream from Pennsylvania, Egg Nog lovers & naysayers alike can equally appreciate the quality and thoughtfulness behind this Pennsylvania Dutch best-seller.

Festive Spiked Coffee

Pennsylvania Dutch adds a kick to festive coffee drinks, perfect for après-ski sipping, long winter walks or just hanging by the fire with friends. Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Iced Caramel Lattes are given a boozy twist, and the coffee-chain-favorite “cold foam” lattes are reimagined in this Iced Latte with Pumpkin Spice Foam. And for tea lovers, this Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte is about as cozy as it gets.

Level-Up Your Espresso Martini

The easiest way to turn any espresso martini into a holiday espresso martini is by adding in a splash of Peppermint Bark Cream Liqueur or Pumpkin Spice Cream Liqueur. Salted Caramel is also a decadent addition to your espresso martini that can easily be enjoyed around the holidays or year-round!

  2. Sprinkle your desired amount of crushed peppermints over the top.
