Author:
Recipe type: Drinks
Ingredients
  • ½ ounce Peppermint Schnapps
  • ½ ounce rum (or Malibu Rum for an extra tropical flavor))
  • 3 ounces of a sparkling coconut drink (either soda or sparkling water)
  • candy cane
Instructions
  1. Mix the Peppermint Schnapps, rum and sparkling coconut drink together with ice in a shaker. Carefully pour into a cocktail or festive glass without the ice.
  2. Finish with a candy cane & serve immediately!
Notes
The drink will start to turn a bit pink from the coloring in the candy cane and the drink will further sweeten as the candy cane sits in there. So keep this in mind if making up a couple ahead of time and chilling. Maybe hold off on adding the candy cane until you are ready to serve.

For the sparkling coconut drink, Goya coconut soda or Cascade Ice Sparkling Water Coconut are two good options!
