"When you’re yearning for something simple after all the rushing, prepping, wrapping, and stuffing of the holiday season, make this. It’s as simple as forming a snowball."
6 ounces white creme de menthe
6 ounces Irish cream
2 cups ice cubes
Pour it all into a blender. Push the button and let it run until it’s smooth. Hum a Christmas carol and imagine that ludicrous leg lamp from “A Christmas Story” til you smile. Or if you’re particularly cranky, ferociously jab at the blender’s on/off button. Once the cubes are blended into smoothness, pour into the nearest glass. If you’ve made it thick enough, use it as a dip for a few holiday cookies. Sigh. Now that’s a happy holiday moment.
