Peppermint Martinis with Vanilla Vodka
If you love peppermint as I do, you are sure to love this peppermint martini recipe with vanilla vodka. I have tried several peppermint martini recipes over the years, but this cocktail recipe is by far the best peppermint martini recipe to celebrate the holiday season! Your guests will love the crushed candy cane rim that complements the chocolate and peppermint flavors perfectly. This peppermint martini cocktail recipe is easy to make and looks very festive for the holiday season.
TIP: Make sure you use the white crème de cacao for this recipe. The taste of the dark version works well, but it won’t give you the look you are after.
Peppermint Martinis with Vanilla Vodka Recipe
Yield: 1 cocktail
Time to Prepare: 10 minutes
2 oz. vanilla vodka, chilled
1 oz. white crème de cacao, chilled
1 oz. Peppermint schnapps, chilled
3 oz. peppermint candy, crushed
¼ fresh lime
Small Candy Canes
Place peppermint candy in a plastic bag and cover it with a towel. Pound bag with a meat mallet or rolling pin until the candy is crushed into very small pieces. Transfer crushed candy pieces to a flat plate.
Run a small wedge of lime around the rim of a martini glass until it is very well moistened. Turn the martini glass upside down and place the moistened rim onto a plate of crushed peppermints. Turn the glass gently to ensure the entire rim is evenly coated.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add vodka, crème de cacao, and peppermint schnapps. Shake vigorously until thoroughly combined. Strain chilled liquid into a prepared martini glass and add a small candy cane if desired. Your guests are sure to love this peppermint vodka martini!
