Very tasty but pretty thick. I may try again but cut down the corn syrup just a bit. I like to put it in the freezer and it was just to much. Read More

Just like eating a candy cane. I used SKYY vodka and added a touch of blue food coloring--going to give it to a friend that likes it in his hot chocolate:) Read More

We didn't have corn syrup so we used a mix of sugar and water. Also didn't have enough plain vodka so had to add a quarter of a cup of vanilla flavoured which added a nice warmth to the peppermint. Used a few drops of food colouring for a nice green colour. Yum! Read More
