Peppermint (Candy Cane) White Russian Cocktail

There are 13 days left for Christmas and I don’t know about you, but it time to drink responsibly. One of my favorite drinks, I made so far has been the White Russian. It has the perfect balance of coffee liqueur, vodka, peppermint, coconut milk and more.

You can enjoy this drink a couple of ways; Keto, Vegan or Non Vegan. All recipes are below. My favorite is Keto because it guilt free, has less carbs, sugar and calories.

Can I use another type of milk other than coconut milk?
