We made these on Christmas Eve and it was a huge hit. We used small candy canes as our garnish and that is where the pink color you see in the picture comes from. It gets pinker as the alcohol slowly dissolves the candy. It also adds a little sweetness. We will definitely make these again next year!

You Got'a make this

Made it for friend and family. Outstanding balance of mint and chocolate. It's a hit that needs no adjustments
