Just the thing for a Holiday party. If you can find red and white sugar to rim the glass, it makes this drink really pretty!

Oooooooooh. This is good! Unexpectedly good. I didn't think I'd like this at all. I cut back on the rum to one ounce and did the remaining liquor the same. This will be great to make around Christmas. They are intense though. Drink them slow! I used DeKuyper peppermint blast and Captain's Tattoo Rum. Read More

I wasn't huge on the taste but I threw a holiday party and everyone LOVED these. Plus even though I wasn't crazy about how it tasted they were sooo cute with a red sugar rim and the small candy cane garnish. This is such an easy way to impress people! I can't wait to make them again for this year's Christmas party. Read More

My wife loves them. I will say they take your breath away. Myself I'd cut the drink with a little 7-up or sprite maybe as much as 50-50. Read More

Very strong with a cough syrup taste. I made the recipe exactly as written. To strong for me but I like the idea of a peppermint martini. Try cutting the alcohol in half and adding sprite or a 7 up floater. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly but served two not just the one serving the recipe states. It is strong tasting but I don't know what it needs to smooth it out. I might try it again substituting vodka for the rum. Read More
