25 ml White Crème de Cacao
6 ml Peppermint Schnapps (or 1.5 tsp)
Crushed Candy Cane for Rim
Mini Candy Cane for garnish
Prepare Your Glass: Start by rimming a martini glass with crushed candy cane. You can do this by moistening the rim with a bit of water or simple syrup and then dipping it into the crushed candy cane.
Chill the Ingredients: In a shaker filled with ice, combine 50 ml of Christmas Vodka, 25 ml of white crème de cacao, and approximately 6 ml (a bit more than 1 teaspoon) of peppermint schnapps.
Shake it Up: Shake the mixture vigorously until well-chilled. This not only cools the drink but also allows the flavors to meld beautifully.
Strain and Serve: Strain the cocktail into the prepared martini glass, ensuring a smooth pour.
Garnish: Add a mini candy cane to the rim of the glass or float it in the drink for an extra festive touch and a hint of peppermint flavor.
