  • 1/2 ounce creme de cacao white
  • 1/2 ounce peppermint schnapps


  • Fill the shaker with ice.
  • Measure out the schnapps and the creme de cacao.
  • Pour in the peppermint schnapps and the white Creme de Cacao to the shaker. 
  • Shake for at least 10 seconds and pour into the shot glasses.



  • Frozen glasses. Serve these in frozen shot glasses for even chillier drink.
  • Different alcohol for schnapps. Switch the peppermint schnapps out for white Creme de Menthe. Using the green Creme de Menthe will turn your polar bear drink green.
  • Heavy cream. Add a splash of heavy cream to make this drink white in color.
  • Different alcohol for creme de cocoa. Use a white chocolate Irish cream liqueur in place of the white Creme de cocoa to make this a white polar bear shot.
