I absolutely love hosting get togethers. I am not always the biggest fan of all the prepwork that proceeds said gatherings, but the actual event: sign me up. I never tire of coming up with different recipes to serve and more often than not, I usually like to create different cocktails or put a spin on an old favorite.
I love peppermint all year round so this is not just a holiday drink in my book, but the ingredients are more readily found this time of year. and if we're being honest with each other here...how can you possibly go wrong with oreos? Exactly my answer...you can't!
I first tried my hand at this a few years ago and I tweaked a few things this time to make it as close to perfect as I could. Or ok, next week I will be humble...not today. It is perfect. Would I lie to you? Don't answer that.
1 cup peppermint ice cream
1/2 cup crushed oreos
2 oz kahlua
2 oz baileys
1 1/2 oz vodka(I used whipped cream flavored)
1/2 cup ice
crushed peppermint pieces (optional)
Place all ingredients in blender and blend till desired consistency reached. if you want to rim your glass, I usually pour a little milk on a plate and dip lip of glass in it. on a separate plate, pour crushed peppermint pieces. Dip glass pieces.
I may have already enjoyed a few too many of these this year. I do not feel even a little bit bad about it either!
