Almost every holiday movie ever made features a mandatory celebration scene at the North Pole post-sleigh takeoff. There, the elves munch cookies and toast to the end of their busy season. What exactly is in their frosty little mugs? A mix of crème de menthe, Fireball, and mashed-up candy canes, of course.
1½ ounces crème de menthe (green)
1½ ounces Fireball or other cinnamon-flavored whiskey
1 ounce cream
5 mini candy canes
5 cinnamon candies
Mix all ingredients in a blender with ice and blend well.
Pour into a martini glass or highball glass rimmed with crushed candy canes.
