Luckily for us, we had no where to be during the big storm yesterday. We could wait it out, enjoy a nice cocktail and will deal with digging ourselves out today. I've tried a few unsuccessful vodka based drinks lately, so this time I stuck to things I knew we like. This is a variation of the Girl Scout Cookie Shooters we've made a few times before.
3 shots Kahlua
3 shots Baileys
1 1/2 shots Peppermint Schnapps
3 shots half and half (more if you want it to be less strong)
Measure into cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into chilled glasses. Grate some chocolate over the top if desired (I used a Lindt truffle).
