A Christmas Cocktail -Coastal Holiday Ideas

Because it's Friday (yay!), we are kicking off our 20 days of Coastal Holiday Ideas with a Candy Cane Martini. So festive, pretty and should be fairly easy to pull off to impress holiday guests!

1 1/4 ounces vanilla vodka
  • 1 1/4 ounces white crème de cacao
  • 3/4 ounce peppermint schnapps
  • Garnish: peppermint candy
  • Preparation
  • Combine vanilla vodka, white creme de cacao, and peppermint schnapps in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with peppermint candy.
  • It's beginning to feel a bit more Christmassy (is that a word?) here in San Francisco! It's COLD!!   Maybe this fun little treat will warm us up tonight...
Happy Friday!

P.S.  Gives me a chance to use my Starfish Martini Glasses!  Super Festive look for a Coastal Holiday Celebration -
