  • Not a fan of rum? You can easily substitute it for vanilla vodka. 
  • Feeling extra festive? Add a cool rim of shredded coconut to your glass (see our Peppermint Snowflake Martini for instructions)
  • You can make this drink ahead of time but don’t add the whipped cream until right before serving as it tends to “wilt” after a while.
