Chocolate Candy Cane Martini Recipe

Create a signature drink for your holiday party and treat your guests to a

chocolate candy cane martini. This martini is a festive drink for Christmas.

After Christmas you can use leftover candy canes to create this martini for New

Year’s Eve. The martini is made with vanilla vodka, chocolate liqueur, and

peppermint extract. If you have peppermint schnapps you can add in place of the

extract. It is sweet and refreshing. A stress free way to entertain is to have

your signature martini prepared in a pitcher before everyone arrives. In

addition to this martini peppermint hot chocolate is a delicious drink to

share. Basic hot chocolate is kicked up a notch with peppermint schnapps and

chocolate liqueur. There may be guests who do not drink alcohol or are not old

enough. You can serve a virgin peppermint hot chocolate. In place of the

chocolate liqueur and peppermint schnapps use cream and peppermint extract.
