Oooooooooh. This is good! Unexpectedly good. I didn't think I'd like this at all. I cut back on the rum to one ounce, and did the remaining liquor the same. This will be great to make around Christmas. They are intense, though. Drink them slow! I used DeKuyper peppermint blast and Captain's Tattoo Rum.

I wasn't huge on the taste, but I threw a holiday party and everyone LOVED these. Plus, even though I wasn't crazy about how it tasted, they were sooo cute with a red sugar rim and the small candy cane garnish. This is such an easy way to impress people! I can't wait to make them again for this year's Christmas party.

This tasted like cough syrup.

My wife loves them. I will say they take your breath away. Myself, I'd cut the drink with a little 7-up or sprite maybe as much as 50-50.
