This cocktail combines two seasonal favorites, eggnog and peppermint tea! The eggnog here is dairy-free (use a brand derived from coconut or soy milk), but you could also use a traditional blend, which would make the drink thicker. If you prefer something sweeter, swapping vanilla vodka in for the plain vodka is another option.
Peppermint tea works as a relaxant, so this is the perfect drink to serve as a nightcap. Offer one to your guests after dinner, or sip on one solo while indulging in a little holiday cheer!
