The perfect Christmas cocktail: Peppermint White Russian with coffee liqueur, peppermint schnapps, coconut milk (to keep it vegan) and a candy cane rim. So festive, easy to make and delicious!


  • 4 oz full fat coconut milk*
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 3/4 oz peppermint schnapps 
  • 1/2 oz Kahlúa or another coffee flavored liqueur
  • 1 tsp agave or simple syrup + more for rim
  • Crushed candy canes


  1. Rim the edge of a glass with agave or simple syrup, then dip in crushed candy canes. 
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add coconut milk, vodka, peppermint schnapps, Kahlúa and agave. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds, then pour into a chilled glass. 
  3. Garnish with a candy cane or fresh mint. Enjoy! 


*Full fat coconut milk comes in a can and typically has a layer of cream at the top and liquid at the bottom. Shake vigorously (or blend) to combine the liquid & cream before adding to this recipe.
