You’ll never forget the Mind Eraser cocktail thanks to its easy recipe and fun flavors.

Mind Eraser with Straw from Above

We have vague memories of drinking Mind Eraser cocktails back in the 1990s, a decade after the layered cocktail was a star at NYC discotheques and lounges around the world.

However, now that we’ve crafted Mind Erasers at home, we can’t forget the caffeinated cocktail with stark similarities to the Black Russian.

What Is a Mind Eraser?

The Mind Eraser cocktail is tamer than its name implies. It’s also delicious.

It would be easy to call the Mind Eraser a fizzy Black Russian or a Black Russian with bubbles since that’s essentially what it is. But not exactly.

This Horseradish Sauce is creamy and full of flavor. The horseradish is strong and spicy, and paired with sour cream and other unique flavors, this sauce takes any dish to the next level!

I grew up as a meat and potatoes kind of girl. It was always one of my favoite meals. That’s probably why I love this horseradish sauce so much. It’s perfect on a juicy steak (try this easy air fryer steak recipe), on top of a prime rib, or with cube steaks!

Is it just us or is the Coquito having a moment? The Puerto Rican holiday tipple seems to be everywhere both online and in real life.

The traditional Caribbean cocktail initially hit our radar while we were researching holiday drinks. Then, by pure coincidence, we bumped into a TV commercial (sponsored by Goya) featuring the milky concoction along with dancing gingerbread man cookies.

We were so entranced that we had to rewind the DVR both for the dancing gingerbread men and the drink. Before long, we went to the store to buy coconut cream and ordered a brand new blender online.

German Christmas Fruit Loaf (Christstollen)

This holiday season, swap out your traditional fruit cake for this tasty German version! Translated, “stollen” means fruit loaf. These are eaten all year round, but in December they’re called Christstollen. Stollen bread is soft with the perfect chew. Similar to a fruit cake, it’s also loaded with cranberries, raisins, and candied citrus for delicious fruity flavor!

White Chocolate Peppermint Fudge – Food Fun & Faraway Places

Whether you’re looking for a fun holiday gift or just a way to treat your family, this white chocolate peppermint fudge recipe is a classic.

White chocolate fudge with peppermint candy pieces.

I was so surprised to read that it’s believed fudge originated from Baltimore, Maryland!

I may be a Florida girl now, but I’m originally from the Old Line State. I still make Maryland crab dip and Old Bay crab cakes, both recipes from my home state, and both delicious!

This fudge is rich and creamy, but with the refreshing taste of mint. It is one of those dishes that feels like it should be complicated, but it really is an easy recipe for the holiday season.

The red and white colors are ideal for the winter months, making this a great homemade Christmas gift for family or friends.

The only problem is that this festive fudge tastes so good it may be hard to give
