I’m planning on having a couple of these ready by the fire and the Christmas tree when Jim gets home from work tonight – it’s from a recipe found in the newspaper, supposedly TGIFriday’s beverage. Looks yummy!
- 1 fluid ounce white Creme de Cacao
- 1 fluid ounce peppermint schnapps
- 1 fluid ounce half-and-half
- 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
- 1/4 cup crushed ice
- whipped cream
- peppermint candy canes
Combine liqueurs, half and half, ice cream, and crushed ice in a blender; blend until smooth.
Swirl grenadine syrup around the inside (moving from bottom to top) of a tall glass; quickly pour the drink into the glass (to freeze and hold the red swirl against the glass).
Serve topped with whipped cream and the candy cane which doubles as a drink stirrer.
A non-alcoholic version of this drink may be made using 1 cup vanilla ice cream, 1/2 cup milk, and 5-6 drops peppermint extract.
