A delightful fusion of chocolate and peppermint, this cocktail is a liquid embodiment of a classic candy, designed to bring a smile to your face even in the chilliest weather. So, if you’re a fan of minty freshness paired with luxurious chocolate, stick around; you’re in for a treat!
While the cocktail doesn’t have a long or storied history like some of its classic counterparts, it draws its inspiration from the York Peppermint Pattie—a candy that has been around since 1940.
