Christmas Eve Cocktail

For all you other parents of young children who end up spending most of your Night Before Christmas wrapping gifts and fighting with “some assembly required” toys and instructions in every language except real English, this might help.  Roy brought me some special presents from the liquor store this year, which I used to whip up this sweet little concoction.  Fill a cocktail shaker half way with ice, add a shot of creme de cocoa (I used the white but they tell me the dark is basically the same thing, just a different color – the white is prettiest in this wintery version), a shot of peppermint schnapps, and about 2.5 shots of milk.  Shake this up and strain into chilled cocktail glasses.  Garnish with a candy cane (I’m cheap, so I broke one in half for these two cocktails).  If it sits for a bit, the candy cane gives its a beautiful pink tint at the bottom.  Mine do not usually last long enough for this part, but they still taste awesome.  Creamy, chocolatey, minty and delicious – Ho Ho Ho!
