The exchange of sweets for Valentine's Day has taken a new twist with this sweet that's all grown up.
The perfect candy concoction for two.
4 Crushed peppermint candies
4 oz. Vodka
2 oz. Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
2 oz. Cream
1 oz. Grenadine
1 oz. Kahlua
Drop of Peppermint Schnapps (approx. 1/8 tsp)
2 parts sugar to 1 part water. Bring water to boil. Add sugar, stirring constantly until completely dissovled. Let cool. Can be kept in fridge for up to two weeks.
Crush peppermints in food processer. Rim two martini glasses with water then dip into crushed peppermints to create a candy coated rim (yum!)
Add remaining goodness (i.e., ingredients) to a cocktail shaker along with a few ice cubes. Shake very well, then pour.
It's sweet creamy goodness in a glass!
A sweet start to a perfect evening!
