The Story Behind The Peppermint Old Fashioned
The Peppermint Old Fashioned is a delicious invigorating cocktail that has the delight of a snowy winter day in each sip. It brings together everyone's favorite holiday flavor: peppermint, with the equally seasonal notes of orange peel, and the warmth of PATRÓN Añejo. What’s not to love about that?
With easy assembly, the addition of tequila and peppermint syrup make this cocktail a go-to for holiday parties and festive activities. Just combine all of the ingredients into a large mixing glass, stir and strain over ice to enjoy — and don’t forget to garnish with an orange peel for that true Old Fashioned appeal.
