Thirsty Thursday: Peppermint Patty (Hot or Cold), Tory Burch Sale

I was on the hunt for a good minty cocktail, and came across this recipe for a Peppermint Patty HERE. I've provided the hot and cold recipes, depending on what you're in the mood for.  Enjoy!

"There are two different ways to make a Peppermint Patty, it is a matter of preference and which liqueurs you have in stock. Both versions end up tasting like an old fashioned Peppermint Patty filled with a soothing blend of peppermint and chocolate.  This can also be made as a shooter or warmed up for a Hot Peppermint Patty."

Yield: 1 Cocktail

Ingredients:

1 oz white crème de cacao
1 oz white crème de menthe
OR
1 oz peppermint schnapps
1 oz dark crème de cacao
2 oz cream

Preparation:

Version 1:
Pour the crème de cacao and crème de menthe in an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.
Stir.

Version 2:
Pour the peppermint schnapps, crème de cacao, and cream in an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.
Shake by placing a mixing tin over the glass and giving it one or two good shakes.
