1 oz vodka
2 oz milk, half-and-half or cream

In a large glass or bowl, whisk together all ingredients. Divide between two glasses and add ice.

For a special touch, you can add a candy cane rim by moistening the edge of the glass (before filling) with water and then dipping it in crushed candy canes.
