Probably not the "green" some of you were thinking. This entry for our
12 Days of Christmas Cocktailscame to us from Heather D. in Nashville, Tennessee - and HOLY CRAP are they good! So good, in fact, that the first batch was gone before the ice cream had enough time to soften up for the second batch.
I love a cocktail that is festive, delicious, and super easy to make more than one at a time. Babe, a vodka drinker by years of training, thought the recipe sounded too sweet for his liking. But after his third one, he couldn't think of a more perfect holiday drink! The color is the shade of my Christmas tree, and the mint flavors make it a perfect after-dinner cocktail. I think I will forego baking my usual six different types of holiday cookies this year, and simply serve this for my Christmas dinner dessert.
Thanks to Heather, I just saved 14 hours of baking, allowing more time for Happy Hour! I'll drink to that!
