Did you know that it’s holiday cocktail week at Brit HQ? Sure, every week might seem like cocktail week… but this one’s the real deal. While watching the Big Lebowski a couple weeks ago, we thought to ourselves, “how can we make the classic White Russian more Christmas-y?” The answer? York Peppermint Patties. Clearly.
Presenting our latest tipsy creation: The Peppermint Pattie White Russian.
If you’re a White Russian purist, you may scoff at the fact that this drink is shaken and strained. But, we still think The Dude would abide :)
Ingredients (makes 1 drink)
- 2 York peppermint patties
- 1 oz Peppermint Mocha Kahlua
- 2 oz vodka
- 4 oz low fat milk
Take one pattie and place it in a glass. Now, muddle! Muddle, muddle, muddle.
Add 1 oz of Kahlua. Muddle some more. Now add ice, 2 oz of vodka, and 4 oz of milk.
Shake it! Shake, shake, shake, and strain into a tumbler.
Take your second peppermint pattie and cut it halfway up and use as garnish. Voila!
Peppermint Pattie White Russians!
One of these’ll get you toasty enough to brave that blind date – we promise ;)
