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.

Ingredients

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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
