Christmas Martini

Photo complements of

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.

And remember…feel free to enjoy your favorite tipple over the holidays, but please don’t drink and drive.
