I was given an amazing opportunity to participate in a Holiday Cocktail Party Hop, I mean seriously, Christmas and food and drinks and desserts who wouldn’t want to hop along right…. for me a
Little twist on an old favourite….. this year I decided to “shake-up” the traditional Peppermintini.
As with most holiday drinks this is a quick and easy to fix/make, funny isn’t it how almost all holiday drinks can look spectacular yet only take a few minutes to fix. That is most likely because mom’s and dad’s may need drinks in a hurry and of course when you add Christmas garnishees anything looks great right??
Gather your ingredients, a bottle of Spiced Rum, a bottle of Mint Schnapps and a bottle of Chocolate Liquor. Add in a Martini Shaker, some ice and a glass and we are set to go.
1/4 shot of Mint Schnapps ( not peppermint)
1 1/2 oz of Chocolate Liquor
1/2 oz spiced rum
(originally I added 1/2 oz of the mint but it is a very strong flavour hence the need to cut back)
Add ice to your shaker, pour in your ingredients and shake it off, shake it off , (sorry couldn’t resist)
Pour mixture into your glass and garnishee with a candy cane and a colourful straw.
If you have time to prep you can rim your glass with green and yellow candy sprinkles ( as I did) or even Candy Cane pieces.
You are set to go, now take your drink into the living room, put your feet up and savour the chocolate/mint flavours.
add a few chocolates on the side and you are set .
For a less decadent drink one can add a splash of Milk or cream and some ice in a tall boy glass and really savour the flavours of Christmas
and for a really awesome experience please take a look at the blogs participating in this Holiday Cocktail Party!
