I wanted to create a new signature cocktail for the holiday this year! We’re hosting and attending quite a few parties, and I thought it would be fun to have something special in addition to our “regulars” (hot cider and whiskey, mulled wine, and champagne ice cubes in cranberry juice!). I really wanted to make something with a traditional and nontraditional flavor mix. And so the Peppermint Coconut Cocktail was born.
So, right now you’re either like, “Oh yeahhhhh!”, or “OH nooooo”. If you like peppermint AND coconut, you’re gonna like this! It’s weird and wonderful and creamy and perfectly festive!
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake-shake-shake. Bonus points if you shake while you sing Shake It Off. Serve over ice. Garnish with sprinkles and candy canes if you wanna be fancy… I know you do!
