Candy Cane Drink

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
  • grenadine
  • whipped cream
  • peppermint candy canes


  1. Combine liqueurs, half and half, ice cream, and crushed ice in a blender; blend until smooth.
  2. 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).
  3. Serve topped with whipped cream and the candy cane which doubles as a drink stirrer.
  4. 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.

Hello Friends

I have the coolest job in the world. I get to create gorgeous images of beautiful kids and families, so they can remember these precious days forever!

I live on Lake Keowee in SC, but I travel frequently back to the Pittsburgh/Washington PA area and do sessions in BOTH places!
