Winter Wonderland Holiday Cocktail
I knew I wanted to make a winter white cocktail when I stumbled onto these adorable Christmas tree drink stirrers at Target. Obviously, they were found in the wonderful world of the $1 Target section. They were the inspiration behind this drink and I think these turned out perfectly. With just three ingredients, this cocktail is delicious, simple and decadent.
While trying to figure out how to make an all white cocktail, I knew I wanted it to feel white chocolate-y. I headed to the liquor store and grabbed Absolut Vanilla which is full of amazing flavor even by itself, and then Godiva White Chocolate Liquor. I’ve actually never had this stuff so I was excited to bring it home, crack it open and take a swig of it. Hey, it’s all in the name of recipe testing, right? Well, it was delicious!
Mix all of these together with a touch of white creme de menthe for a minty flavor, plus a good splash of milk (use whatever you like, almond, soy or whatever) and it turned out to be insanely delicious. If you’re not into minty flavors, just leave out the creme de menthe and it’s just as delicious. Add your own spin to it too by garnishing with a little dusting of cinnamon for extra flavor or adding a coconut flake rim. You can really have fun with this one!

- 1.5 ounces of vanilla vodka
- 2 ounces of milk, any milk you prefer will work

Add all ingredients to a glass with ice and stir. It’s really that easy! You can definitely shake this in a cocktail shaker and strain it into a coupe glass if you like for a little something fancier. Or a champagne flute with a little coconut rim.
