Peppermint tea cocktail

Peppermint tea immediately becomes a delicious cocktail with very little effort. Try peppermint tea with 2oz ounces of Smirnoff peppermint vodka, crème de menthe, or Bailey's chocolate peppermint liqueur, for a festive seasonal cocktail that everyone will love. It doesn't take much more than a little imagination and a stroll down the holiday alcohol aisle to find the right liquor or liqueur to jazz up your peppermint tea!

Peppermint tea cocktails can be a delightful addition to your holiday celebrations. Here's a simple recipe using peppermint tea and some festive liqueurs:


  • 2 oz Smirnoff Peppermint Vodka
  • 1 oz Crème de Menthe
  • 1 oz Bailey's Chocolate Peppermint Liqueur
  • 4 oz freshly brewed Peppermint Frost Tea (cooled to room temperature)
  • Crushed ice
  • Fresh mint leaves or candy canes for garnish (optional)


  1. Start by brewing a cup of peppermint tea and letting it cool to room temperature. You can brew it a bit stronger if you like a more robust peppermint flavor.

  2. In a shaker, add the Smirnoff Peppermint Vodka, Crème de Menthe, Bailey's Chocolate Peppermint Liqueur, and the cooled peppermint tea.

  3. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds until well-chilled.

  4. Strain the cocktail mixture into a chilled cocktail glass filled with crushed ice.

  5. If desired, garnish your cocktail with a sprig of fresh mint leaves or a small candy cane for a festive touch.

  6. Serve and enjoy your delicious peppermint tea cocktail!

Feel free to adjust the proportions of the ingredients to suit your taste. You can also add a touch of sweetness by incorporating simple syrup or honey if you prefer your cocktail a bit sweeter. These cocktails are perfect for sipping by the fire or serving at holiday gatherings. Enjoy responsibly!
