To start off, pick your cutest mug. A glass mug works well so you can see the pink colours come out.
Crush one of the candy canes until you’re left with a plate of candy cane dust. I like to put my broken candy canes into a sandwich bag, and hit repeatedly with a rolling pin.
Put a little bit of honey on the rim of your mug. Dip the rim of your mug into the crushed candy cane to get it to stick, for a pretty addition.
Next, rub the mint leaves between your hands. This helps extract the natural oils and flavours. Pop the mint leaves into your glass and sweeten to taste. To finish off, add a splash of rose water.
Pour in boiling water and add a candy cane. You not only give yourself something to stir your drink and the red from the candy cane will slowly turn your drink a soft, misty pink colour with little sprigs of mint to hint at the flavours within.
