We love the combination of peppermint icecream and Gingerale, but adapt to your families tastes and dub it any fanciful Christmas name and make it a yearly tradition!
This year we tried the peppermint icecream with perrier sparkling water and enjoyed that version, too!
To make these Snowman Floats you will need:
-Gingerale (I use Green tea flavored gingerale if I can find it!)
A smashed up candy cane makes for a pretty presentation – I store the broken ones in a ziplock baggy until I find some use for them (like garnishing the edge of a glass for these floats!)
When ready to make serve in pretty glasses and garnish with a candy cane.
These glasses are from Pioneer Woman and are my favorite!
The other of our favorite Christmas drinks is Eggless Eggnog. I enjoy eggnog in all forms – my grandma use to make it with raw eggs (from her own chickens) and it was delicious, even if it creeped me out a little bit!
I found this recipe a few years ago and it is a fun eggless variation of eggnog.
This needs to sit in the fridge for a while before hand, so make sure to account for that when making it!
