My Two Cents ...before I spend it said...

Those sound like great holiday drinks!

I had a "Santa's Helper Martini" last night.

5oz vanilla vodka
2oz white creme de menthe
1/2oz peppermint schnapps
(...& possibly something with chocolate in it, but it can be made without it!)

Then they put a small peppermint stick inside the glass as a garnish.

It was great!

"POLAR EXPRESS"

this is a holiday shot, think- a blast straight from the North Pole! and sooooo delicious too!!

((in Canada they call these polar bears))

Choose shot glass of your choice
Mix, half & half Creme de Cocoa with
Creme De Minthe and enjoy!

I am personally not a fan of mint chocolate, but this is by far my favorite 'shot' out there!
