This little concoction is SO simple to make, it’s almost dangerous!

Pro Tips For Making This Drink

Make sure that your liqueurs are cold – makes it SO much better!

Even though it will be cold, this drink will warm you up on a cold December night!

Please be careful though because, as delicious as it is, these babies would catch up to you in a hurry.

So, please drink responsibly and have a designated driver, or drink at home ๐Ÿ™‚

To serve these at a party, coat the rims of the glasses ahead of time and then pour the shaken liqueurs into each glass immediately before serving.

Your guests will be quite impressed!

  • Candy Canes
  • Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
  • Peppermint Schnapps


  • Crush candy canes into tiny pieces (I did this by sealing a candy cane in a ziploc bag and then crushing it with a mallet).
  • Pour the crushed candy cane onto a plate.
  • Wet the rim of a shot glass with water.
  • Roll the rim of the shot glass into the crushed candy cane (at first I had a hard time getting the candy cane pieces to stick to the rim, but once it became sticky there was no problem).
  • Pour equal parts of Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur and Peppermint Schnapps into a shaker.
  • Shake until frothy.
  • Pour into the shot glass.
  • Drink up!

  1. If you have a cocktail shaker just put ice in it with the liquors and then strain the liquid into the glass. Thats how bartenders get it cold
