The Mint Icicle

Happy Holidays everyone. Have you been savvy and gotten your Christmas shopping out of the way already or been procrastinating like we do? It’s ok, early bird doesn’t always catch the worm. Its officially December, and we’re sharing more fun Holiday recipes including today’s. I’m not a huge mint fan, but I do tend to give it a try in festive drinks during this time of year. Something about the snow on the ground, and sight of candy canes and pine trees that gets me willing to gulp down peppermint like it was medicine. If you’re a peppermint fan, and more importantly a fan of chocolate, you’ll want to give this one a try. It features both, and Grey Goose Vodka to give you a nice “warm” feeling during these cold winters. Enjoy.
