I usually enjoy a martini on Friday night…and Saturday night…and…oh, sorry. Anyways….I have a hardcover book of martini recipes with over 200 to choose from.
Here are just two of them to enjoy over the Christmas holiday.
6 measures gin
1 measure dry vermouth
1 tsp peppermint schnapps
2 miniature candy cane, 1 of them finely crushed
Wet the rim of a martini glass with vodka or schnapps and dip into the crushed candy cane. Sprinkle about 1/2 tsp. of crushed candy into bottom of glass.
Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into martini glass and garnish with the other candy cane.
Same as above except use vodka in place of the gin.
