I scaled it down to one, using a jigger each of the peppermint schnapps and creme de cacao and a splash of half-n-half and grenadine. Delicious!

Delicious! Don't use more than a splash of grenadine though. Too much and it looks like pepto bismal.

If not for the candy cane, the drink would have lacked flavor and pizzazz. I could barely detect any alcohol, much less the peppermint schnapps. It was only when the candy cane started to melt in the glass that I could taste peppermint. Sure, I could have added more schnapps, but I just couldn't get into it enough to start tweaking.

Absolutely amazing! This was a big hit at a party. So yummy!
