I scaled it down to one using a jigger each of the peppermint schnapps and creme de cacao and a splash of half-n-half and grenadine. Delicious! Read More

If not for the candy cane the drink would have lacked flavor and pizzazz. I could barely detect any alcohol much less the peppermint schnapps. It was only when the candy cane started to melt in the glass that I could taste peppermint. Sure I could have added more schnapps but I just couldn't get into it enough to start tweaking. Read More

Delicious! Don't use more than a splash of grenadine though. Too much and it looks like pepto bismal. Read More

These were tasty but sweet. Definitely a dessert martini. I used 75% non-fat milk and 25% whipping cream instead of half and half other wise followed the recipe exactly. I do plan to make these again. I'm going to crush a candy cane and rim the glasses with the crushed candy cane. Yes it'll be sweeter but the presentation will be worth it! Thanks for the recipe.
