Simple, sweet and strong — this Peppermint White Russian is holiday party perfection in a glass. Of course, enjoy responsibly, and be sure to keep close tabs on your Uncle Eddie.


  • 1/2 piece peppermint candy, crushed (for glass rim)
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat milk
  • 2 ounces coffee liqueur
  • 1 1/2 ounces peppermint schnapps


  1. Using your forefinger and thumb, slightly dampen the rim of a chilled glass with water. Press the rim into crushed peppermint candy and then chill the glass in the fridge or freezer.
  2. Combine milk, coffee liqueur and peppermint schnapps in a cocktail shaker. Shake two times and strain over additional ice, if desired.


Don’t over-shake or you’ll end up with a glassful of foam!
