Everyone loves peppermint so offer your guests something cool, refreshing, and different. They can be made as a cocktail OR a mocktail and they are guaranteed to put a smile on your guests face. Both recipes are from nutritionist and registered dietitian Corinne Dobbas. Your guests will appreciate the fact that these healthy drinks will not add calories to their holiday cheer.
