Christmas Martini

Photo complements of Mr-booze.com

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.

~~~CHRISTMAS MARTINI~~~

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.

~~~CHRISTMAS TINI~~~

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.
