Heat milk, heavy cream and white chocolate until warm; be sure it’s warm enough to drink, but not boiling. Remove from heat and add vodka.  Pour into cup and top with whipped cream and peppermint crumbles or a peppermint stick.

2 1/2 cups milk

2 cups heavy cream

2 tablespoons white chocolate; melted

1 oz peppermint vodka

Whipped cream

Peppermint candies or peppermint stick

Don’t want to make it all from scratch?  Buy white hot chocolate mix (Land-o-Lakes has a white chocolate version which is very good) and then add the peppermint vodka and whipped cream.  Quicker to make … and just as yummy.

Lemon Peppermint Spritzer

This is the perfect summer drink.  Instead of plain old lemonade, try this instead.
