Holiday Cocktail: Mint Chocolate Snowflake

With Christmas Eve just a month away, I thought I'd share a holiday cocktail I put together, I like to call it the Mint Chocolate Snowflake.


Rim the glass with finely shredded, unsweetened coconut
*I got it to stick using agave syrup but honey would also work

2 ice cubes
1/2 shot Kahlua
1 shot Baileys Mint Chocolate Irish Cream
Milk, shaken

Top with more shredded coconut and shaved chocolate
Garnish with a candy cane

Minty, milky, chocolatey and comforting -- the coconut adds a great flavour and the candy cane is a garnish you can savour even after the drink is gone.

Best served in a stemmed glass to keep your hands warm on a cold night!
