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.
