Peppermint White Russian Cocktail
Y’all, I LOVE mint flavored treats. I especially love chocolate and peppermint treats. I bring peppermint cocoa with me to the hokey rink nearly every week…it’s bordering on problematic.
So, when I was sent a box of Jackson Morgan Cream’s Peppermint Mocha, I was a little more than excited! Friends, this drink is AMAZING! It’s got hint of whiskey, without the bite that a lot of whiskey brands have. It’s creamy, and chocolatey, with just enough peppermint to let you know it’s there. It quickly became my favorite holiday beverage as it was…but, then, then I added a bit of vodka, and I feel like a Southern Julia Childs trying to make the recipes while enjoying the beverages…it borders on comical.
My box of awesome from Jackson Morgan Cream included a few recipe cards, and I decided to try the Peppermint White Russian, with a sprinkle of crushed peppermint on top.
I followed the recipe below, but I rimmed my glass with crushed candy canes, and added a candy cane stir stick…I’ve enjoyed a few glasses, but I’m saving the rest for our New Year’s Eve celebration.
Rim the Glass with Peppermint
I wanted the glass to have a peppermint rim, so, I crushed a candy cane in my mortar and pestle set. Once the candy cane was crushed, I dipped the glass in corn syrup. It’s important not to put too much corn syrup on the rim. Next, dip the glass into the candy cane pieces. Next, pop the glass into the freezer for a few minutes to harden the corn syrup.
Then, fill the glass with crushed ice and the mixed drink. Finally, top with more crushed candy cane pieces and garnish with a candy cane.
