A tiny riff on something from Rum Therapy to enjoy over the holidays while opening your Advent calendar or lighting another menorah candle. Garnish it with a candy cane if you wish, but it’s pretty self explanatory without one!
1 3/4 oz Bacardi Light Rum
1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup
2 oz Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
2 oz Half ‘n Half
1 oz Peppermint Schnapps
1/2 oz Grenadine
~4 oz Sprite/7 Up/ Lemon-Lime soda
1 drop of red food coloring (optional)
Combine all into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake like you mean it for 20+ seconds.
Strain over fresh ice in a chilled decorative holiday glass. Top off with Sprite and with a few individual optional teardrops of Grenadine over the frothy top.
Note: if instead of including the 1/2 oz of Grenadine in the pre-shake tin, you can pour as a last step to settle on the bottom, but then you may have wanted to include the drop of red food coloring to redden your cocktail.
