In case you aren’t already feeling the festive mood that has definitely set in early this year, this drink will be a quick way to get you in the mood! If you would like to make a mocktail version of this drink, you can use 2 ounces of very strongly brewed coffee, a splash of peppermint extract, and 2 ounces of heavy cream or milk, whichever your preference!
MAKES: 2 drinks
YOU WILL NEED:
•An old-fashioned glass, or something similar
•3-4 candy canes
•Cocktail shaker, or small spoon
•1 1/2 oz. Kahlúa
•1 1/2 oz. Peppermint Schnapps
•1 1/2 oz. Vodka of your choice
•Half and Half, or milk of your choice
1.) Crush 2 of the candy canes into small pieces. Dip the rim of the glass into corn syrup very lightly and roll in the crushed candy canes.
2.) Fill your glass 3/4 fill with ice. In your cocktail shaker, or in the glass if you don’t have one, mix together the Kahlúa, Schnapps, and Vodka. Pour into the glass, and then fill with half and half.
3.) Add the remaining candy cane to the edge of the glass for garnish, and enjoy!
