Candy Cane Martini


I love a fun martini, and the holidays is a perfect time to serve something festive to your guests. We will be hosting my husband's family for dinner, on Christmas Day and these Candy Cane Martinis will start the evening with a nice touch. We will be using these pretty, green martini glasses, with my special Christmas charms attached to the stem. The candy cane garnish is fun too. This martini tastes like white chocolate and peppermint - so delicious :-)

Don't be intimidated by serving a martini - you just measure and place the ingredients in a martini shaker filled with ice, shake and strain into a pretty glass. It really is as easy as can be and there are so many fun recipes to try - in fact, finding a great, new martini recipe is one of my favorite things.

Candy Cane Martini Recipe

1 1/2 ounces vanilla vodka

1 1/2 ounces white creme de cacao

1/2 ounce peppermint schnapps

Combine the vodka, creme de cacao and peppermint schnapps in a martini shaker, filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a candy cane.

Merry Christmas!
