Peppermint martini — with a kiss!

Tis the season for all things peppermint! From peppermint mochas at Starbucks to peppermint bark, it’s all around us. While we enjoy those minty-fresh treats as much as the next person, we prefer to enjoy our peppermint in something a little more grown up. And that’s exactly what we get when sipping on this peppermint martini.

Made with vanilla vodka, peppermint schnapps and cream, this martini has everything we want in a Christmas cocktail. Add in some crushed candy cane for garnish and you have yourself a wonderful peppermint martini for the most wonderful time of the year.

Peppermint Kiss Martini
Serves 1

1 ½ ounces vanilla vodka
1 ounce peppermint schnapps
1 ounce cream crushed candy cane for garnish

Add all ingredients except for the garnish in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.
Top with the crushed candy cane and enjoy your holiday season!
