File this holiday cocktail recipe under "don't knock it till you've tried it." More often than not, when I offer this cocktail to guests, they will refuse it, then take a sip of someone else's and immediately demand one of their own.
Somehow, even though this cocktail is sweet, creamy, and minty, it doesn't taste like candy but instead like a refined and delicious drink. Garnished with a playful peppermint stick, the candy cane cocktail is a great holiday party-starter or an excellent after-dinner drink. I plan on making them at a cocktail party this weekend and I expect my arm will get a good workout. Get the recipe now.
