Candy Cane Cocktail

Hey, friends! So many of you told us that you made and LOVED our Turtle Coffee Cocktail recipe last month that we decided to try our hand at creating a new recipe for you that’s perfect for the approaching holiday season! Are you ready? We might be biased, but we think it just might be even better than its predecessor…meet the Candy Cane Cocktail!

Candy Cane Cocktail

Ingredients {per drink}:
– 1/2 oz créme de menthe {we used green}

– 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
– chocolate syrup
– ice
– crushed candy cane
– whipped cream

Pour créme de menthe, Kalhua, Bailey’s, and milk into your blender. Add two scoops of ice cream, a bit of ice, and a generous squeeze of chocolate syrup {you can add more or less depending on how much you love chocolate!}. Blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and crushed candy cane.

As always, there are plenty of ways you can adapt this for your dietary needs and preferences.

ALCOHOL-FREE: Eliminate the alcohol and substitute peppermint chocolate syrup for regular.

 Use fat-free milk, reduced fat ice cream, and fat free whipped cream {or eliminate whipped cream altogether}

CHOCOLATE FREE: Just eliminate the chocolate syrup and you still have a tasty mint flavored treat.
