After the show I tried a version with Creme De Menthe and decided I liked the mixture of the boozy notes better for the idea I was going for.
The idea for this drink -- going against knowing it's supposed to be yet another eggnog recipe -- I went for 1 shot of kalua, 1 shot Creme De Menthe, mixed with coconut milk and frothed cream. The effect of the peppermint stick in the cup comes with the creme de menthe and the ws-23. This worked out well in terms of creating what I was thinking about.
I liked it shake and vape, I would say the creams will totally come out after a week or two steep. I haven't steeped this yet so if there are any drastic changes to it in the next few weeks I'll update this recipe. If it goes as I suspect it will, I probably won't need to update it and a week or two steep will see richer creams and a slight smoothing of the boozy warm notes and a calming of the cooling and the mint. But feel free to shake and vape this as it's pretty yummy.

Refreshing and juicy. Strange, intriguing. Drip on to figure out the point...

Creme de Menthe (TPA/TFA) – obviously the main role player in this recipe. Even though the flavor itself is not bad as a “single flavor mix” too, it’s missing something. It actually asks for another flavor to boost its background notes unless you are OK with how it plays as a stand alone. I’m a flavor junkie and I long for that missing link.
Cherry Blossom (TPA/TFA) – very lightweight cherry flavor, floral, airy, excellent addition to Creme de Menthe. It doesn’t bring any additional weight to the mint and the juice itself in general. It’s 100% spot on. I’ve also tried to replace Cherry Blossom with Elderflower (FLV) but it didn’t turn that well. If you want to give it a shot, replace Cherry Blossom with Elderflower at 0.5%.
Creamy Coconut (FW) – I was actually missing a touch of tropical sensation to this juice and coconut was the most logical choice. Didn’t try any other fruit/nut because it pairs so damn good with Creme de Menthe. Both outside and inside color of coconut fit to my juice color scheme too so that’s another plus. Don’t try to replace with Coconut Extra (TPA/TFA) coz you might end up vaping the rubber tasting mint!
Vienna Cream (FA) – in order to accent the creamy note of Creme de Menthe I needed floral note cream which also pairs well with Cherry Blossom. The cream itself has to be lightweight, no custard or heavy vanilla because all other ingredients are likewise. So two creams came into consideration: Vienna Cream (FA) and Sweet Cream (FW) but the formal one won elegantly.
Sugar is optional.

My thoughts on this recipe in a review I sent the creator: This stuff is great. Tastes very much like the mints I remember, rich, creamy, a little minty, a little buttery, sweet as all hell. Just utterly vapable and delicious. The only minor quibble I have is that there's a touch too much caramel flavor. Arguably, this should knock some of the points because of accuracy/authenticity. Thing is, it actually ADDS to the taste. There's something to a little caramel added into this that kicks the flavor into overdrive. Can't put my finger on if it adds more to the buttery side or to the sweet side, but when that note shows up, it makes a nice zing moment before it slides back, and the mint goes out completely smooth.
This one's for mint addicts, candy junkies, or someone looking for a sweet, creamy minty rush to add something different, without going for the usual fruit/menthol thing. Absolutely ADV worthy, if you can handle the richness.
While it can be shake and vaped, it really shines after 7 days.

Steep for at least a week. If you shake and vape before a week the creams just don't pick up as well. Cool minty inhale with a creamy, vanilla exhale. You can add marshmallow or sweetener if you want more of a milkshake flavor, if you want less cool mint then dial the creme de menthe back to 2% or so.
A cool, herbal mix inspired by traditional medicinal soft drinks and small beers. While there is enough sassafras and root beer flavor to remind you of the more familiar supermarket offerings, the creme de menthe, absinthe, and cinnamon give the minty, earthy, and anise notes associated with its traditional, rustic counterpart more of a leading role.
