Here’s a great drink to mix up after dinner or as a dessert drink. The peppermint is always good for soothing the stomach, the ice cream will give you your sugar fix and the alcohol will do whatever alcohol does for you. Oh and don’t be afraid subtract the alcohol from this and mix up a batch for the kids because they’re going to love it. Just add a couple ounces of milk in place of the alcohol.

Drink Mixing Instructions:
Break out your trusty Margaritaville machine and put the Peppermint Candy Cane Ice Cream, light whipping cream, peppermint schnapps and vodka into your machines blending jar. Next set the number drinks selector switch to one and if you’re using a Fiji machine the type of drink to slides. Press the shave/blend switch let the machine do its thing. After the blending process is completed check to make sure that the drink is thick enough and if it isn’t simply manually shave some more ice into the blending jar and blend.
If you’re using a regular blender start by briefly blending the ingredients, minus the ice, to make sure they are thoroughly mixed. Next add a half of the 1 cup of ice and continue blending. Then check to make sure that the drink is thick enough for you and if it isn’t add more ice and continue blending.
If you have it, serve the drink in a well-chilled beer mug and then top the drink off with some canned whipped cream, red and green sprinkles, large diameter straw.
