Just in time for your New Year’s celebration, here is a great recipe for a White Chocolate Peppermint Martini. Our daughter Courtney has been working a part-time catering job over the holidays, and the bartender at a recent event gave her this recipe. It sounded good – so we had to try it!
This is a very smooth and delicious white chocolate martini made with vanilla vodka and just a hint of peppermint (if you are a big peppermint fan, you can adjust the proportions to equal parts vanilla vodka and peppermint schnapps). We made it more festive by rimming the glass with some red sugar sprinkles and by drizzling the inside of the glass with chocolate syrup – but that is completely optional. We also added a mini candy cane, perched on the glass rim for an additional festive touch.
We hope you enjoy this as much as we did and please drink responsibly.
