Alcohol and other goodies for hot chocolate

I am making hot chocolate for our holiday book club tonight. We usually do wine, so I am planning to set out some possible things to put in the hot chocolate. Creme de menthe, kalhlua, kahlua cream (or something like that). Baileys if I have it. What else? Would people ever drink rum in it? Vanilla vodka? Cinnamon sticks, peppermint syrup, candy canes... anything else non alcoholic?

Something spicy like chili powder is always fun. Love the cinnamon sticks! I know some people who like kirsch in their hot chocolate. Pear brandy and cognac would also be tasty additions.

Oooh, forgot about chile powders. Definitely that too. And thanks for brandy suggestions, am pretty sure I have some.

Kahlua sounds good. Chocolate + coffee is always tasty.

Not sure about rum, but since I'm not a big fan of very sweet things (especially drinks), I'd be very happy with a shot of whiskey in there - like an Irish coffee.

I am aaaaaall about homemade marshmallows in my hot chocolate!

Any alcohol is suitable as well. Salted caramel sauce would be heavenly. :D
