Perfect Gift for your favorite snarky Parents :: Peppermint Schnapps with a side of cheeky

It’s Christmas mode at our house right now.  Full throttle.  My favorite response to all things chaos and crazy is to get a little punchy.  And, that my friends, is where this peppermint schnapps comes in.

I am going to be honest, I am laughing at my own joke right now.  I had so much fun concocting this little gift.  We have a few friends we have relied on since our babies were little and we have been through it all.  I decided alcohol was the best and most appropriate gift for them.  So, I made homemade peppermint schnapps (the recipe is from the Handmade Winter e-book) and got completely carried away making up ways to use the schnapps.

Using existing recipes I made up new, completely snarky names…Reindeer Pick-Me-Up; Mrs. Claus’ Homemade Ambien; Elf Tea and Santa’s Little secret.  I know, right? Pretty funny.  I mean, as a parent with a healthy sense of skepticism and humor I love adding a bit of dark edge to the whole Christmas thing.  I would never transfer any of that onto my kids, their enjoyment of Christmas magic makes me so happy.  But, it’s all a little nuts and I personally enjoyed thinking about how Mrs. Claus handles the season.  Ya know what I mean?

I tucked the recipes into the gift bags I made earlier, tucked in a few candy canes and delivered to a few friends.

I’m secretly hoping it leads to a raucous evening or two over the school break.  Happy Holidays, y’all.
