December 24, 2010 (Day 328) — Candy Cane
It’s Christmas Eve! Tonight, you will be visited by three spirits!
If you’re anything like me (and let’s face it, if you’re reading the Website by a guy who creates a new drink a day, you probably are) then you don’t really have candy canes hanging from your tree. We have our usual ornaments and lights, but anything even remotely edible is a big no no, considering we have two dogs.
That doesn’t mean I’m not fond of the phallic little candies. So, let’s try and replicate them in a glass, shall we?
2 oz peppermint schnapps
2 oz creme de cacao
1 oz Grenadine
1 oz half and half
splash of 7-up or club soda
Does it taste like a candy cane? Indeed it does! Like… a lot. A very festive, bright pink hue accompanies the drink.
