Holiday Cocktail Recipes: Slate Edition

Looking for some delicious dessert-y cocktail recipes this holiday season? Maybe a little protein or caffeine boost too? We’ve got you covered. These tried-and-true Slate cocktails are the perfect holiday libations. Check ‘em out!

The Slate Espresso (or Vanilla) Martini

A Slate classic. Next time you’re in the mood for a caffeine-fueled martini, this Mocha Latte drink will knock your socks off. Not much of a chocolate person? Sub in our Vanilla Latte instead! Either way, shake it up with ice and enjoy:


  • 2 oz Slate Mocha or Vanilla Latte

  • 2 oz vodka

  • ½ ounce coffee liqueur 


  • If you’re feeling fancy: 3 coffee beans for health, wealth, and happiness

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Delight 

Introducing the high protein peppermint patty. Smooth, strong, and minty, it’s the best way to help cleanse that palate after dinner:


  • 2 oz Slate Dark Chocolate

  • 2 oz vodka

  • 1 oz Peppermint Schnapps 


  • 1 miniature candy cane 

  • Lactose free whipped cream

French Vanilla Eggnog

Drinking-eggnog GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHYWe googled how to make homemade eggnog. We decided to buy it instead. But… we did want to make it more vanilla-y… so here’s an easy one:


  • 3 oz lactose free eggnog 

  • 3 oz French Vanilla Slate 

  • An extra splash of rum if you’re feeling bold…


  • Lactose free whipped cream

  • Dash of Cinnamon

  • Dash of Ground Nutmeg 

  • What’s a dash?

The Boozy Chocolate PB&B Smoothie

A known lover of peanut butter and banana, we’re sure Elvis would have gotten a kick out of this one. Due to the consistency, we highly recommend blending the following: 


  • Half a Dark Chocolate Slate

  • 1 oz peanut butter whiskey

  • ½ a banana

  • Ice 

  • Blender

Or… Make it a Mocktail!

No booze? No problem. Make a Mocktail Martini! Remember to shake it up nicely:


  • 4 oz Slate of your choice

  • 2 oz dairy-free whipping cream 

  • *If using a non-caffeinated Slate, add in a shot of espresso!


  • Sea salt

  • Chocolate flakes 

There ya have it! Slate Holiday cocktails for the whole fam… if they’re over 21 of course. As always we’d love to know what Slate concoctions YOU come up with so remember tag us on IG if you test these or any others out for yourself.

Happy Holidays and Cheers,
