Holiday Chocolate Peppermint Martini

December 5, 2016

Oh my goodness, this chocolate peppermint martini is so delicious! It is like an explosion of peppermint and chocolate goodness with every sip. It is rimmed with peppermint candy cane for a festive holiday twist. We enjoyed these as we decorated the Christmas tree and added the final touches to the house in preparation for the Holidays. I think this may become a new holiday tradition! Max even joined in on the fun. He thinks that the tree skirt is his new bed!


Serving Size: 1 martini

1 1/2 oz. creme de cacao

1 oz. peppermint schnapps

1 1/2 oz. vanilla vodka

Crushed peppermint candy cane - garnish

Approx. 1 tsp honey

Handful of ice


Crush the candy canes to use for garnish.

Lightly coat the rim of the glass with honey.

Dip the rim of the glass into the crushed candy cane and coat the rim well. Set glass aside.

Pour the creme de cacao, peppermint schnapps, vanilla vodka and ice into a shaker. Shake vigorously to mix the ingredients.

Pour into the prepared martini glasses, and enjoy!
