FARGO – Gone are the days of the pumpkin spice latte. ’Tis the season of the peppermint mocha.
Bring on the minty martinis, eggnogs, hot toddies and punches.
Add a little extra flavor and crunch to your wintry drinks with these edible stir sticks:
• Candy canes. The straight ones melt quickly into cocoa, and the little ones hang nicely on the side of a martini glass.
• Pirouttes. Pepperidge Farm’s wafer cookies come in three flavors – Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Hazelnut and French Vanilla. The French Vanilla pairs well with chai.
• Lollipops. With 24 flavors, there’s an Original Gourmet lollipop for every holiday cocktail. Stir till the last sip, then finish it off.
