Here is a delicious cocktail for the holidays, or anytime really. Its one of my favorite wintertime treats.
1 1/2 parts good vodka (splurge a little here, its well worth it)
1 part peppermint schnapps (any brand will do the trick)
1 part half and half
Crushed candy canes and small candy canes or mint sprigs for garnish.
Wet some snazzy martini glasses in water and chill in the freezer ahead of time ( 30 min should do). Pour some water into a saucer or bowl large enough for the rims of the glasses to fit. Tip your chilled glass upside down and dip into the water just enough to wet the rim, then dip into the crushed candy canes.
Mix the vodka, schnapps and cream in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously while your grooving to your favorite party tune. Pour into prepared glasses and enjoy immediatly. Bottoms up!
