Today I’m here to talk about this delicious Holiday Peppermint White Russian…and probably a whole lot of other nonsense (it’s one of those kinds of days). Traditionally, White Russians are made with Kahlúa, Vodka and a splash of cream and served in an Old Fashioned Glass. Contrary to the name, the White Russian (or Black Russian- a White Russian minus the cream) did not originate in Russia. They were simply given the name due to the vodka. Anywho, these cocktails are seriously delicious. Add a little Peppermint Schnapps and HELLO, Christmas! Stick a candy cane in there and BOOM! Party time!
Combine crushed candy canes and granulated sugar in a small bowl and mix well to combine. If desired, rim the top of each glass with candy cane and sugar mixture and fill with ice.
Fill a cocktail shaker with Peppermint Schnapps, Kahlúa, vodka and ice. Shake well until combined and cold. Pour into prepared glass and top with desired amount of half-and-half or whole milk.
Garnish with additional candy canes, if desired.
