MARTINI MONDAY – (enjoy the first evening of the week with a cool cocktail and a easy snack!)

You know to hang them on your tree. You can stick them on a present. Santa always used to give me one when I visited him in the little shack at the park.  Today’s blog has a drink recipe and a way of using the same ingredient, candy canes. How about a couple more ideas?

Hiccups are a bit of a phenomenon in the medical world. Though many times the hiccups occur because of stomach issues, there are multiple factors that may cause hiccups. However, there are a number of ways to cure hiccups to give you relief from this particularly pesky, yet usually minor malady.

Suck on a candy cane. Because licking a candy cane takes a bit of concentration, it distracts you from the hiccups. In addition, peppermint is excellent for calming stomach muscles, which could be a contributing factor to your hiccups. If you don’t have candy canes on hand, anything with real peppermint oil is said to be an excellent substitute for curing hiccups.

  • Chop up candy canes and sprinkle them on an ice cream sundae.
  • Stir your hot cocoa with them.
  • Add crushed candy canes to brownies, cookie batter, or rice krispy treats. The canes add a unique flavor and crunch and also make a colorful cookie.

Here’s a video on how to make a delicious candy cane drinkie poo.


3/4 oz peppermint schnapps
3/4 oz creme de cacao
1/4 oz grenadine syrup
7-Up® soda

In highball glass filled with ice, combine peppermint schnapps, white creme de cacao & grenadine. Fill glass with half-and-half. Top with 7-up. Garnish with a small candy cane. Great for the Holidays!
