This Peppermint Eggnog Milkshake Recipe Is the Perfect Thing to Make For Holiday Happy Hour


Eggnog is such a classic holiday beverage. Though it can be a polarizing drink, I think it's delicious on its own, and it has a lot of potential as a mixer. Because it's super rich, one treat comes to mind when I think of eggnog: a milkshake!

This peppermint eggnog milkshake not only tastes amazing, but it's boozy, too. That's right — peppermint vodka is a very important component of this milkshake. Along with vanilla ice cream, a little bit of cinnamon, and the eggnog, this milkshake is simple and easy to make, but will deliver amazing flavor all season long.

If you're getting tired of traditional holiday cocktails, take out your blender and give this peppermint eggnog milkshake a spin. You won't regret it (expect maybe the next morning if you have more than one).
