If you’re overwhelmed with the holidays, take a deep breath and read on. These Eggnog Milkshakes take only 5 minutes to prepare and you really only need 2 ingredients. If you’re having a group of kids or adults over, or just want to make something sweet for your family, these are simple and delicious! For adults, if you want to add bourbon or rum for a nighttime dessert treat, go right ahead. This is my newest favorite Christmas milkshake although everyone still emails me for my recipe for Peppermint Milkshakes from 2008. Find the recipe here.
I have a great cocktail idea for your upcoming holiday parties. This Peppermint White Russian recipe is only three ingredients, and takes 5 minutes to prepare. Feel free to make a large batch ahead of time, and when your guests arrive, pour over ice. Adding Smirnoff Peppermint Vodka to this classic cocktail give it a fresh holiday twist.
Smirnoff Peppermint Vodka delivers the mouth-watering taste of sweet candy canes, balanced by the soothing cool of peppermint. Also unique is that the bottle is very cool looking. This would make a great gift packaged with some hot chocolate mix. This limited time specialty can make for a great inclusion in an upcoming holiday gifts as this new bottle designs hitting the shelves this season. It looks great out on a bar during the holiday season.
The holidays are coming, and I had a friend call me for holiday cocktail ideas for a party she is throwing. I gave her this recipe for a Candy Cane Cocktail, and she was so excited about it. It’s so pretty and simple to make, and guests absolutely love it! This recipe is from NoMa Social in New Rochelle, New York. If you live near there, check it out as they are having holiday specials such as from 4-8pm you can take advantage of the NoMa Social’s 4×4 deal where you can choose any 4 different wines, cocktails, beers and tapas for only 4 dollars each during the winter season.
