You can also dip the rim in chocolate and then in crushed peppermint candies.
Pour in the vodka, Kahlua, and peppermint schnapps.
Then pour the heavy cream into the glass over the back of a spoon or stir everything together.
Pouring the cream over the back of the spoon gives the drink a beautiful marbled look. You can also stir to combine everything together to make it easier as well.
Drizzle with more chocolate syrup and garnish with a candy cane, peppermint stick, or peppermint candy.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a White Russian?
A traditional White Russian consists of vodka, coffee liqueur, and heavy cream, poured over ice in an old-fashioned glass.

No, you do not, a healthier substitute is half and half, but you can use milk as an alternative as well.
What if I don’t like vodka?
In normal White Russian recipes, vodka is one of the main components, but if you are not a vodka fan you can swap it out with rum either light or dark. This will produce a sweeter flavor compared to vodka.
