You won't find it in your grocery store dairy section

I went to visit my old friends Scooter, Todd and my favorite twins this weekend, and after driving for 2.5 hours in traffic & snow to get there, trust me when I tell you I was happy to arrive. Shortly after taking off my coat & boots and giving hugs all around, Scooter asked me the funniest question: "Can I interest you in a chocolate peppermint martini?"

That question is funny because, hello? I just drove 2.5 hours in traffic & snow to get there, of course you can interest me in a chocolate peppermint martini... and if you're my neighbor, and I merely walk over to your house; you can also interest me in one. Why would I ever I turn that down?

When she brought it over to me in a huge wine glass, she said, "Oh, I don't serve this drink in a martini glass because they're not big enough."

...and fade to black


Just kidding. We didn't go THAT crazy, but they were really good. So good, in fact, that I asked her for the recipe, which she wrote out for me at the end of the night, after having a few. I'm posting it here not only so you can try these yourself, but also because you can see that on paper--as in real life-- my friends are hilarious.

I LOVE half-n-falf! Can we get that at Trader Joe's? :)

Don Mills Diva said...

That's hilarious. Scooter definitely sounds like my kinda friend!

Melissa said...

Hmm, I wonder if half and falf would work in my mac and cheese recipe...

Looks like I'll have to give this a try for my martini friends!!

ALF said...

Sounds like fun! Thanks for sharing - half-n-falf all around!

Merlot Chic said...

Might be new drink to explorer... Sounds great..

Stacey said...

Sure, the half-n-falf is clearly important, but my money's on the peppermint SNAPPS giving it that special kick. And I, for one, will TOTALLY be drinking these out of a large wine glass. Or a bowl, I'll let you know.

I'll be making those at my next party! For shiz Shu!

Jules said...

Yes, "half-in-falf" for everyone! Seriously, the drink is delicious...

@Stacey: I was wondering if anyone else would notice the "snapps". Trust me, if you have enough of these, you'll definitely think that you're snapps are peppermint-y.

@SHULA: my other shu: I should have known that a recipe for a drink would get you to comment! Your other Shu.

sounds pretty yummy...

2.5 hours...yikes... does it always take that long?

Jules said...

Kris: It usually only takes a little over an hour, depending on the time of day, but the weather and traffic this weekend was an issue. The half-n-falf hit the spot, though!

Taj said...

Half-n-falf, snapps and caco? That drink must be the bomb!

Jules said...

@MerlotChic: You might end up changing your blogger name to Merlot-n-MartiniChic!

@Taj: Who needs to spell correctly after several drinks when you can mix a martini like a badass?!

Kat said...

Half n falf that is funny. I am so going to try this on New Years eve. I will let you know if it knocked me off my socks :)

Sauntering Soul said...

Yum. Must try this drink....and I don't even drink.

Spammon said...

Half and half is the bomb. When I go to Village Inn I'll drink those little half and half shots on the table because it's so good. I'd even go as far as a cup full of straight cream with a nice chocolate chip cookie.

Taj said...

That seals the deal for me Jules! I might even be the ultimate badass and chug the Half-n-Falf right from the carton. 'Cause that's how I roll.

Melissa said...

I just swung over for this recipe and I laughed all over again...half n falf...;)
