Can’t decide between a dessert and a cocktail? Then this is the solution. Because it IS a sweet cocktail – but sometimes that’s just what you need!
To prepare the glass, add some Swerve (granulated) to a plate and mix in some red food dye. Squirt the tiniest dab of honey or corn syrup onto a paper towel and then wipe it around the rim of the glass. Then dip it into the dyed sweetener.
To make the cocktail, add vodka, Sugar Free Peppermint Syrup (available from Amazon or Netrition), Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup (also available from Amazon or Netrition) and heavy cream to a snazzy cocktail shaker.
Note – if you don’t have the syrups you can make your own low carb simple syrup and add in a little peppermint and chocolate extract instead!
Shake well! Drop a couple of ice cubes into the prepared glass and pour the cocktail over the top. Cheers!Amazing #lowcarb chocolate peppermint cocktail - perfect for the holidays! Click To Tweet
