Peppermint Patty from Archer


Archer: Oh my God! You have to try this! Hot cocoa, dark creme de cacao, hint of creme de menthe, and peppermint schnapps. I call it a Peppermint Patty.
– The Archer Sanction

Fox Animation | Season 6 - Episode 3

I realize the Peppermint Patty isn’t a particularly unique drink to make in this crazy, weird realm of “making stuff from popular culture”. I’ve seen quite a few others recreate this drink, however in those instances things like whipped cream and shaved chocolate were added. Don’t get me wrong, whipped cream and chocolate are delicious, but they aren’t referenced as part of the drink by Archer in this episode.

One thing that I can infer from the Peppermint Patty is that Archer, being a stickler for the finer things in life, would not tolerate ready mix cocoa in his drink. Which means it’s time to make some homemade cocoa and then add a bunch of booze to it!


Hot Cocoa

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup cream
  • Salt (optional)

Peppermint Patty

  • Hot cocoa
  • 1/2 oz creme de cacao
  • 1/2 oz creme de menthe
  • 1 oz peppermint schnapps


Hot Cocoa

Mix cocoa, sugar, and salt, with a small amount of cream to dissolve the ingredients while cooking over low heat. Slowly add the remained of the cream and warm over medium heat until thoroughly combined and hot.

Peppermint Patty

Add liquors to the hot cocoa and shake well to combine. Serve immediately or store in a thermos for your next mountain climbing “vacation”.


I’m not a huge fan of overly sweet alcoholic beverages that don’t include tiny umbrellas. So I guess I’m actually not really a fan of chocolatey alcoholic beverages? Anyway, this was fine but there’s no way I could drink enough of these to really feel much of anything. Except perhaps a subtle sense of calm, warm feeling; feet up by the fire as snug and cozy. Eh, maybe these drinks aren’t so bad after all.

Try to recreate the experiment done with the cow in the ATHF episode Revenge of the Trees

Use an enormous piece of steak stuffed with pork and ranch dressing to inject cheese

Maybe also do some of the dead guy ice cream flavors in The Simpsons

You can’t ask her to make Grumblecakes! Only liars and thieves eat Grumblecakes and those people go to prison. You don’t want Lauren to go to prison do you?
