In case you missed your blog post from yesterday, this week we are in full on Celebrate Adventure Mode! So today, since we are also still in full on holiday mode, we present to you one of our holiday favorites - the Candy Cane Martini!
Okay so before you shake your head and start with the "That's not a REAL drink!" take it from me, you need to keep your eyes on this one, because it packs a surprising wallop. But it's smooth and soothing so you have no idea it's coming until you wake up the next day next to one of Santa's elves in bed and have to start answering strange questions about how you got there.
So you know. Drink responsibly. And enjoy!
Also, did you check out our Celebrate Adventure Quiz to find out what adventure you'll take this year? Because you totally should.
In case you need the text copy of the recipe:
~ 2 parts vanilla vodka
~ 1 part peppermint schnapps
~ 1 part white creme de cacao
Combine liquors in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake or stir, then strain the perfectly clear mixture into a martini glass. If you like the red color, add a touch of grenadine or marachino cherry juice. Pour slowly for a two-toned layer effect. Garnish with a candy cane or cherry.
Thanks to Bar Maestro Rob Bisser for introducing us to this magical cocktail many years ago. Cheers, Rob!
