Christmas Cocktails

Christmas celebrations deserve a signature cocktail or two. So I’m sharing two of my favorites.

Candy Cane Martini ~ I created this recipe while trimming the tree with my family. This recipe makes 1 martini.

You will need a cocktail shaker

Vanilla Vodka ~ I use Stoli. For the best flavor store Vodka in the freezer.

Peppermint Schnapps

Ice and Candy Canes

Place unwrapped candy canes in a ziplock and crush using a rolling pin.  Lightly wet the edges of the martini glasses and then rim the glass with the candy cane bits.

Add ice to the shaker.

2 shots Vodka and 1 Peppermint schnapps. Shake and then pour into prepared glass.


Hot Toddy ~ makes 1.

2 tsp Brown sugar

Juice of 1 lemon wedge

2 shots Whiskey or Scotch ~ I use Jack Daniels.

Boiling water to fill mugs

Place all ingredients in a cup then pour boiling water and stir.
