Ho Ho Ho MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!  I am so excited for Christmas this year!  My kids totally get it and they are loving the Elf on the Shelf, the tree, the presents and the Christmas music!  We are about to make some cookies for Santa this weekend and get our reindeer food ready for Christmas Eve.  But with all this fun stuff for the kids us adults need a little something to kick back and relax too! That’s where these Peppermint Bark Martinis come in!

One afternoon I was scrolling through facebook and this recipe for Peppermint Bark White Russian Came up.  I didn’t save the recipe and I searched everywhere and couldn’t find it!  What I did find was a ton of unhealthy recipes with heavy cream!  So I put my husband to the test and we created this recipe.

What we came up with is pure heaven and  I am totally in love with it!  So here it is for all of you to enjoy too!


1 oz Peppermint Bark Pinnacle Vodka

2 oz of Coffee Liqueur

1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa

1/2 cup almond milk or coconut milk



Pour all ingredients into a shaker cup and shake up the drink.  Pour into  a martini glass and serve.  You could top the rim with some crushed candy canes if you want to give it a more festive look.
