The Chocolate Peppermint Stick tastes exactly like you’d expect from the name. The main flavor is overwhelmingly peppermint, but the creme de cacao is strong, too. If you’ve ever had one of those peppermint sticks that has a chocolatey ribbon woven through it instead of the usual red fruity ones, that’s about what this drink tastes like.
This drink should be regarded as a double, and therefore might not be your best choice for a party (particularly if people will be driving themselves home). It’s wonderful for a night in.
- 1 1/2 ounce white creme de cacao
- 1 ounce cream
- 1 ounce peppermint schnapps
Skake well with ice. Strain ingredients into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with a small peppermint candy cane (or, optionally, crush the candy cane and sprinkle it on top) and serve.
