Friday Cocktail – Peppermint Froth


I first had this drink when I went to dinner at a bar that Dude and I used to go to lunch (way back when we worked together). I liked it so much I had two. 😉

After the second one arrived, I took this picture and of course I had to make a fancy frame for it. (forgive me… I was enjoying a wonderful evening with Hubby.

I jotted down the ingredients and decided I would attempt my own version.

Cast of Characters: Grenadine, Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur), peppermint schnapps, vodka, cream (didn’t have cream so for my remake I used milk)

For my remake, I put a jigger and a half of vodka and a jigger schnapps. All I had is Rumple Minze which is strong (100 Proof) so I only put half a jigger. Add a splash of Frangelico and cream. Shake until frothy and then added a drizzle of Grenadine. Mine was pinker, but who cares… guess I didn’t get my drizzle right. Oh well; it was still YUMMY! 😀
