Minty, chocolaty and cool, this spiked dessert drink makes a wonderful way to toast family and friends at holiday gatherings. A little shaved chocolate on top adds an extra-festive touch. —Marcia Whitney, Gainesville, Florida

    Going to try this,I wonder if you added a cup of heavy cream that would help cut back on the sweetness

    Made this for NYE party. It's so sweet people drank very small amounts so serve with 3-5 ounce cups.
