Alex is a happy writer! For Christmas, my partner gifted me with a penguin cocktail shaker and a penguin ice bucket. He knows me quite well. In honor of that, here is a Christmas Martini recipe I developed.
- 3 oz. vanilla vodka
- 2 oz. peppermint schnapps
- peppermint disc candies or candy canes
- sprig of mint
Crush several peppermint candies. Wet rim of martini glass and press into crushed candies. Put one whole candy at the bottom of the glass. Pour the vodka and schnapps into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice. Shake well and strain into the martini glass. Garnish with mint.
