1 shot of vanilla run

1 shot of white chocolate liqueur

1 shot peppermint schnapps

Peppermint candy canes, to garnish

Candy Cane Swirl, by SKYY® vodka

Eating a peppermint candy cane is delicious enough, but drinking one? Fantastic!

1 ounce of SKYY® raspberry vodka

3 ounces of cranberry juice

½ ounce of grenadine

½ ounce of peppermint schnapps

Lemon lime soda

Crushed peppermint candy cane

Rim a martini glass with the crushed candy cane. In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine the raspberry vodka, cranberry juice, grenadine, and peppermint schnapps. Shake and pour into a martini glass. Top with a dash of lemon lime soda, and enjoy!

Peppermint Hot Cocoa, from Michael Chiarello’s Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello

Hot cocoa is a heart-warming treat during the daylight hours, and at night when it’s just the adults? Cocoalicious.

Makes 6 servings

1 quart milk

6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate

9 ounces of peppermint schnapps

Whipped cream

6 peppermint candy canes

Heat one cup of milk in a pan over low heat, and add the chocolate, while stirring continually. Once the chocolate has melted, turn the heat up to medium and add the rest of the milk while stirring rapidly. Don’t allow the mixture to boil.

Serve the hot cocoa in small cups with one and a half ounces of peppermint schnapps in each, and a dollop of whipped cream on top. Stick a peppermint candy cane in each as garnish. Yum!

Peppermint Candy Canes are the perfect garnish to your holiday party or evening in with your favorite adults. Enjoy in moderation, and cheers to some toasty fun. Just be sure to stock up on enough candy canes!
