Peppermint Stick Punch
Happy New Year's Eve! Yes I'm totally late publishing a tasty New Years adult beverage. Better late than never is my motto. I'm having a few friends over tonight and this drink will be the main event. I need it to be so they won't notice how cluttered my house is with Christmas stuff strewn all about. I plan to shove this in their hands as they walk through the door. :) I'm such a good hostess.
There is plenty of sugar in here if that's your thing; which it is totally my thing. You don't get a huge sense of peppermint however, it's just a slight note in the background. Citrus-y is how I would describe this. It's delish, try one tonight when you bring in the New Year.
Thank you all so much for reading my blog. I got a couple of things for Christmas that are bound to make this coming year the best one yet so keep reading! Happy New Year everybody!
