This YUMMY cocktail is OH SO creamy and tastes just like a peppermint patty! Except, of course, this cocktail does have alcohol. But here’s the real kicker! You don’t even have to go out and BUY the alcohol!!

Yes, you read that right! You can actually MAKE both the Kahula and the Peppermint Vodka right there in your own kitchen! It's super easy to do and instead of buying an entire bottle which of course can be quite expensive, you can make exactly how much you need and it will cost you way less! As for this cocktail? We usually serve it around the holidays because it is quite festive but you can actually sip this as an after-dinner drink all winter long!
