Chocolate Peppermint Holiday Cocktail

Make yourself a Chocolate Peppermint Holiday Cocktail when you visit Lake Tahoe.

Wendy’s Chocolate Peppermint Holiday Cocktail

Ingredients

1 ounce Peppermint Schnapps

2 ounces Creme de Cocoa

3 ounces Baileys

4 ounces water

1 Candy cane (crushed for rim)

Instructions

1.  Place candy cane in a plastic Ziplock bag and smash it into candy cane dust with a hammer. This is especially therapeutic after encountering a sullen 15-year-old female.

2.  Rim two martini glasses with the crushed candy cane pieces. I used simple syrup and was able to rim the glasses early in the day before company arrived, but water works as well.

3.  Add about 6 cubes of ice into a cocktail shaker.

4.  Add the 3 liqueurs and water into the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain mixture into the two prepared glasses and enjoy!

*You can also put these ingredients into a Hydroflask, shake, and enjoy. (Skip the crushed candy cane when using a Hydroflask.) This is especially nice while watching the New Years Eve fireworks at 9 pm on the Nevada side of the the state line.*
