Recipe: Peppermint White Russian

Peppermint White Russian

As festive drinks go I’m not into mulled wine.. I really only associate Baileys with Christmas because my Nan used to let us have a tiiiiny glass when we were kids on Christmas Day. So when I saw this Peppermint White Russian cocktail on A Beautiful Mess last year I was inspired to create my own version as I’m a huge fan of a good old White Russian.

These were a huge hit with my family last Christmas Eve and Boxing Day so I thought I’d share the recipe with you guys and maybe inspire your own versions to pass on the Festive White Russian tradition!

Festive Drinks

Creme de Menthe
Candy Canes (optional)

I picked up all the ingredients easily at Morrisons.

Add equal parts Creme de Menthe, Vodka and Kahlua to a tall glass. A single measure is a good amount and not too strong. Top up with milk to taste and decorate with a festive candy cane (I bought mine online at eBay, but a lot of shops have them at this time of year, including pound shops). Serve and enjoy!

Christmas Cocktails

Drink responsibly this Christmas!! Have a great one :))

I Moustache You A Question

Moustache Gifts

When asked me if I’d review a Christmas gift from their range I couldn’t say no to this kooky moustache door mat, it was made for me. This moustache gift arrived rolled up in a branded cardboard ring, complete with the image of a suave man wearing a top hat to go with his gigantic tash.

Those of you that know I have a handmade jewellery brand, also housed under ‘Onetenzeroseven’, will know that I love moustaches – in fact I was amongst the first to actually sell a Moustache themed product. A couple of years ago just as it was getting to the Movember time of year I decided I wanted to help raise money and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer by giving women a way to support the cause. I started with a small number of moustache earrings and they sold out instantly. I guess in a way the popularity of my moustache range has really gained me the momentum to turn what was my hobby into an actual business.

Moustache Door Mat

I love the mat and I think it’s a really fun way to welcome people into my house as my living room walls are dripping with music posters and shelves are adorned with ornaments from Cthulhu to Slimer. It’s like a teenager’s bedroom on crack (and just as messy on some days!). The mat is very light weight, but looks hard wearing as the coils are a thick plastic like material. Those with dogs will understand ;) We’ve been through quite a number of doormats in the time we’ve had our Frank!

When I have my awesome studio for Onetenzeroseven (big plans for next year!) this Moustache door mat will take pride of place to welcome friends and customers into my crazy emporium!

Last Minute Christmas Gifts

I do have an issue with the design, though, because mostly I just want to squash it! The moustache design seems too tall and the ‘humps’ aren’t as defined as I would personally prefer. I might take a pair of scissors to it and give his tash a trim ;)

If you’re still looking for gifts this Christmas, are still taking orders for next day delivery in time for the big day!
