Review This Recipe
This was a great use of the Peppermint Mocha flavor. The peppermint flavor wasn't too overwhelming, but you could still taste it. I replaced the water with 1 cup of whole milk for a creamier drink. It did take a little more effort to make than other drinks, but it was worth it. ~Lindsey, member of the Brew Crew

I found this to be very good. But like to garnish with Cherries or Mint leaves.
