A hot minty coffee drink that is perfect for a cold winter's evening.

Top Review by Miss Annie

Wow! This drink packs a lot of wonderful flavors. I love Kahlua in coffee, and the addition of peppermint schnapps takes the flavor level over the top. I omitted the peppermint garnish, but I didn't miss that at all. I can recommend this lovely adult drink with 5*'s!! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Pam!
