Peppermint Patty Drink
When I was growing up, my grandparents had a bar in the basement. It wasn’t that anyone drank a lot, it was just the place to be together as a family. I remember hearing the music playing, and the signs. My grandfather had what seemed like a thousand signs on the wall. I would sit there and read them, over and over and over. When he passed away and my grandmother needed full-time care, the family had to sell the house. Grandmom moved in with my mom and the family split the signs so that everyone had a little piece of the bar in their homes.
Now, my brother has the tradition. He has a bar set up for everyone to come and hang out. It is funny hearing my little ones, Willow was 5 when she started telling people, I am going over to bar. The looks were hysterical. So for us, the bar is just a place that memories are made.

During the winter, and really anytime, people love peppermint. This is a simple to make peppermint cocktail that doesn’t have an overwhelming taste. This peppermint cocktail tastes similar to a white Russian that has peppermint in it. If you like peppermint white Russian, then you will love this Peppermint Mocha Martini.

The thing that makes Peppermint Patty Martini so delicious, in my opinion, is the chocolate. I love anything mocha. That mix of chocolate coffee flavor can make just about anything taste perfect.
