The shaft is a very popular drink in Victoria, BC. It was invented here! Traditionally you'd drink it like a shot through a straw, but I like to sip it like the lovely cocktail that it is.

• 3 oz of Peppermint Mocha Black Tea, chilled
• 1.5 oz of French Vanilla Kahlua (or other coffee liqueur)
• 1/2 oz of French Vanilla Creamer (or other milk/creamer)
• Ice
• Candy Cane for garnish
1. To a cocktail shaker (or the All Dressed Up Shaker) add all ingredients (except the candy canes) and shake until chilled.
2. Pour into a glass over ice. Top with crushed candy canes, or a whole candy cane. It will melt as you drink giving it more peppermint flavour as you enjoy it.
