Devon Tarby describes why she loves this drink: “The Bad Santa is one of my all time favorites. It requires an overnight infusion of unsweetened cacao butter, which is a little time consuming, but it’s totally worth it – the end result is like peppermint bark candy in a glass. The nice thing about this drink is that it can be made in larger batches and stored in the freezer, making it a great option for holiday entertaining.”
