Here's the perfect Christmas Cocktail and great peppermint recipe- Strawberry Actually: Perfect Christmas Shake Cocktail

 

Perfect Christmas Peppermint Shake Cocktail

Our Strawberry Actually gets it’s name from the not so impressive movie Love Actually (2003). And although the film was given many rotten tomatoes, our strawberry and vanilla ice cream infused with shards of crushed candy cane then topped with Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark is all Yule Tide and Noel. We’re talking rich ice cream flavors here and perfectly paired with the number one Christmas flavor of all time. Peppermint!

This flute full of deliciousness screams Merry Christmas! And it’ll pretty much guarantee to turn the dour faced Ebenezer Scrooges and churlish Grinches of the world into clones of the most famous and cheerful elf of them all, Buddy!  So let’s break out the ice cream scoop and raid the bar because it is time for the perfect Christmas shake cocktail ever! The Strawberry Actually. Check out the recipe below. Cheers!
