Merry Mint Float How To

Offer a refreshment that's both festive and formal!

While milk is known as Santa’s favorite pairing with cookies, offer him—and your guests—a refreshing twist: a merry mint float. Made with lemon lime soda and mint ice cream, this peppermint-flavored drink plays to both the nostalgia and the merriment of the season. Bring together festive and formal by serving the mixed merry mint float in a gold-rimmed glass and garnishing it with a candy cane treat.
