Pink Peppermint Russian

Are you planning on hosting some holiday gatherings this season? I bet you are looking for some fun drinks to serve your guests! Typically I like to make drinks that have the alcohol added at the very end so that I can make one drink base & then let those that like to buzz their drink do so while the rest of us enjoy it- sans alcohol. But this one is a little different- the base IS the alcohol & that’s the point. I had so much fun putting this particular drink together & it turned out so pretty. It’s perfect for your holiday parties.

    Recipe for the White Peppermint Chocolate Milk makes enough for 4-5 glasses - rest of the recipe is PER GLASS
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 - of a 3.5 ounce White Chocolate/Peppermint Candy Bar (I used Hershey's) - broken into pieces
  • 1 oz Kahlua or other coffee liquor
  • 1 oz Vodka - I like to use Stoli
  • Ice
  • Andes Peppermint Crunch bits


  1. In saucepan - combine milk, peppermint extract & candy bar pieces.
  2. Heat & stir until hot & chocolate is melted & combined. Do not boil. (because of the peppermint pieces in the candy bar- the mixture will turn pink)
  3. Remove from heat & allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. In your glass- pack with ice, add in your 1 oz Kahlua & 1 oz Vodka
  5. Ladle in White Peppermint Chocolate Milk to fill remainder of glass
  6. Sprinkle with Andes Peppermint Crunch pieces on top
