White Chocolate Peppermint Martini

Day 309

White Chocolate Peppermint Martini
4 shots out of 5

It's Thursday night, today I got my hair cut, dyed and also got a pedicure.  Tonight I'm going to the movies with a couple friends.  WOW, what a "Me" day!  Our weekend plans of walking through a neighboring cities neighborhood to check out some amazing lights on Friday and then going to see the Zoo Lights on Saturday just got cancelled due to the rain that will be coming in this

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I found this recipe......which I unfortunately could not follow at cookingwithsugar.  Sugar used marshmallow sundae topping......I thought my marshmallow cream I had "might" work.....yea, NO it didn't.  Oh well, life goes on.  The only thing I'd change about this cocktail is the amount of peppermint schnapps.  For me, it's just a little bit too pepperminty, so I might cut it back to 1/2 an ounce instead.  Otherwise, this is a very holiday-ey cocktail that I'm sure many will love.

Here is the recipe for a White Chocolate Peppermint Martini:

  • 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
  • 3/4 oz peppermint schnapps
  • 1 1/2 oz Godiva white chocolate liqueur
  • candy canes, or candy cane sugar for rimming
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above (except the last item which is for rimming). Shake and strain you cocktail into a candy cane or candy cane sugar rimmed martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to my second cocktail that I get to use my BevMo candy cane sugar with!
