Peppermint cookies turned into a cocktail recipe? Why, YES! It’s the perfect party cocktail drink recipe and the easy to make for the holidays or Christmas! It’s even a great New Year’s drink recipe! I also have a few ideas to make a version for the kiddos, so read on. Happy holidays! If you’re looking for more holiday or cocktail drink recipes, try my RECIPE INDEX for many more ideas.
I had a long list of holiday and Christmas recipes I was going to post this week but I’m having a very difficult time getting back into the holiday spirit here in Connecticut. I may have to save some recipes for next year. I was actually all set to post this recipe last Friday but cancelled it after the tragedy at Sandy Hook a few towns over from mine. I’m trying very hard to get back into the holiday spirit and I’m wishing each of you a very happy, healthy, and peaceful holiday season. I have so much to be thankful for this year and hope you do too.
This cocktail is a simple and easy party cocktail drink. The recipe only has a few ingredients. If you’re looking for a non-alcohol version I’d suggest putting some cream and ice (or vanilla ice cream and a little milk) into a blender with some crushed candy canes and a little peppermint extract. You could also add some sugar cookie mix for that cookie flavor. Yum!
