Peppermint Coconut Cocktail

Peppermint Coconut Cocktail (SO good! Click through for the recipe)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!

    It tastes better made with 1.5 oz rum instead of 2 oz vodka. I also added 1oz more coconut milk to make it a little more creamy and shaved andes mints ontop. Try it out! Original recipe tasted like straight alcohol and not enjoyable.

  • This sounds so delicious! I love the cocktails you make on here and it’s been my go-to for drink recipes for some time now 🙂

    Have a wonderful Christmas Elsie, Emma & the rest of the ABM team!!

  • This looks freaking amazing! But I didn’t just say that because I may or may not be a teenage blogger.. xx

  • It’s really cool that coconut is a part of this cocktail! Usually I associate coconuts with tropical-ness and summer, a season with a little more energy and pow. I imagine adding coconut to a winter cocktail adds a nice little zing on the tongue 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

  • Yum! Weird combination but it looks really tempting 😉

    Happy Christmas!!!

  • What a neat idea! I had honestly never thought of using coconut milk in a cocktail before, despite my deep love for it. I adore how you styled the glasses too with the little candy canes off the sides. One day I will be cool enough to have fancy cocktail parties with drinks like these!
