Peppermint Stick

Peppermint Stick cocktail with creme de cocoa and mint liqueur

Around the holidays, we tend to relax our standards a little bit, contenting ourselves to drink whatever’s easy, available, and vaguely thematically-appropriate.

That’s when a drink like the Peppermint Stick comes in handy. It’s easy – just three ingredients. You’ve probably already got the stuff on hand. And while it’s crazy-sweet, the mint liqueur (peppermint schnapps, ideally) helps to balance it out. It’s best served in small doses, and in chilled glasses.

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into chilled small glasses. You can plop a mini candy cane into the drink, or rim the glasses in crushed candy canes beforehand.
