A festive Christmas drink, this Santa's Peppermint Mimosa cocktail with prosecco and candy cane on gray stone concrete background.

What does Santa do after a long night delivering toys to children worldwide and then still having to host the Christmas party for all of the elves? He drinks a few peppermint mimosas, of course! Peppermint is known to be energizing, while the sparkling Prosecco is soothing and relaxing. Perfection.

Ingredients Needed

  • Vanilla icing – this is optional, but just a tiny bit holds the crushed peppermints onto the rim of the glass.
  • Peppermint candies or candy canes – I like using starlight mints for crushing since they have more minty flavor than candy canes. I also use candy canes for garnish.
  • White creme de menthe liqueur – I used DeKuyper brand, but any will work. You could also use the green creme de menthe, but your cocktail will have a green tinge – which is also very festive!
  • Chocolate bitters – I used Woodford Reserve. The chocolate bitters give a slight, mild chocolate taste – think of a peppermint pattie candy.
  • Prosecco – I like using semi-dry or even dry prosecco since the creme de menthe is sweet.
  • Candy canes – as a garnish.
