By Amy Bailey — December 01, 2016

Who doesn’t love a White Russian? With the holidays upon us why not give this classic cocktail a twist, of peppermint that is. Try this Russian Elf recipe by MyScoop:

Russian Elf

2 parts Smirnoff Peppermint Vodka
1 part Kahlua
1 part cream*


Fill a rocks glass with ice cubes. Add Kahlúa and Vodka, finish up with a cream layer. Tip: Ok, It’ll never be as pretty as the pictures. BUT, the layering is manageable at home – just pour the cream of the back of a spoon. Another tip: Serve with a straw and stir it up. *Want a less calorific version? Try it out with milk, skim milk or soymilk!
