A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Spirts Go Down

Here’s another item to add to the list if you’re looking for something to bring the hostess this holiday or maybe just a stocking stuffer.

imagePeppermint Shot Glasses.

No, not shotglasses for Peppermint Schnapps, these are shot glasses that are made from peppermint sticks.

Sooo cute.

I saw them today at both Urban Outfitters (you can order online) and Cost Plus World Market (a dollar cheaper). As a side note, I’ve also seen plenty of chocolate liqueur cups which are great for serving dessert cognac. If you’re looking for a way to add candy to a mixed drink (besides a lemon drop to a lemon martini or cinnamon imperials to a sweet martini) you might want to check out the new Twizzler Strawz.

They’re made for Slurpees and are just regular Twizzlers that are bigger so you can use them like a straw and get added flavor (and eat them). For cocktails, just snip them in half for a martini glass or lowball.

  1. I saw an article online the other day that showed you how to make those yourself: http://boulderdirt.com/features/article.cfm/5029
    I was going to post it, but since you beat me to it smile

    and, oddly enough….I watched Mary Poppins today (that’s where the song comes from).

  2. Cute! I’m wondering if I know somebody who would enjoy these… and wonder how they would hold up to hot chocolate! Is Cost Plus $1 cheaper than the “now $3.99” price, or the “was $9” price at Urban Outfitters?
