Here’s how easy it is to make this Christmas cocktail.
Step 1: Rim the glasses with white chocolate and crushed peppermints
The first step to these peppermint cocktails is something that you can do in advance of your party. To begin, crush some candy canes or peppermints. You can do this by placing the candies in a resealable bag and crushing with a rolling pin or firm tool like a meat tenderizer. Set aside the crushed candies.
Next, melt some white chocolate chips or white candy melts on a flat plate in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Place the glass upside-down onto the melted white chocolate so the rim of the glass is covered. While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle the crushed candies over the white chocolate. Place the candied glasses in the refrigerator – this will set the chocolate and chill the glasses.
Step 2: Mix the cocktail ingredients
Once your guests are ready for a glass of Christmas cheer, you can mix up this fantastic peppermint cocktail. The ingredients you need include the following:
- Rum Chata
- Creme de Cacao
- Peppermint Schnapps
- Cream or Half and Half
To the cocktail shaker with ice, pour in the Rum Chata, Creme de Cacao, Peppermint Schnapps, and cream. Shake well.
Step 3: Pour and enjoy!
Once you’ve shaken the cocktail, you can then pour it into the prepared candied and chilled glasses. Add a candy cane for an extra garnish and a little extra holiday cheer! This drink is amazing for a girls night or kicking back in front of the fireplace and watching your favorite Christmas movie. Enjoy with your favorite Christmas cookies and candies for the ultimate holiday treat!
