This weekend we went to a holiday party where a friend was mixing a drink he calls The Grinch, which really is anything but (unless maybe you’re around the person who drank them the day after…)

A Grinch is basically a Grasshoppper made with vanilla ice cream¬† instead of cream and garnished with a peppermint stick and crushed candy cane sugar on the rim.¬† I actually didn’t drink them, sweet drinks not being my thing, but Kory did, and I can vouch that they’re sort of fun.

We made the Christmas Kidtini version for the kids the next night: a mint chip shake + green food coloring, garnished with candy canes and red sugar on the rim.

We still haven’t made the milk punch, or any cookies, or candy…but we are slowly but surely finding some Christmas spirit.
