Hazah! We are back and with two martinis to finish your week off right.
Pepperminty Goodness! Have a bunch of candy canes left over from the tree that may or may not still up at your house? May this candy coated vanilla/marshmellow martini!
- Marshmallow sundae topping
- 2 peppermint candies, crushed
- 1/4 cup vanilla vodka
- 1 tablespoon peppermint schnapps
- 1/4 cup white chocolate liqueur
Pour some of the marshmallow sundae topping into your mixing container and rim your glasses with some. Dip the marshmallow rimmed glass into the peppermint candy crumbs. Mix remaining ingredients, pour into glass and enjoy!
Modifications we made:
Kroger did not have marshmallow sundae topping, as it was cold and December. We improvised by using Marshmallow fluff, added a little bit of water and heated it up. Also we did not feel like spending $30 for a bottle of Godiva white chocolate Liqueur so we used clear Creme de Caoco.
"I liked it! Very refreshing & Christmas-y. I love the crushed peppermint on the glasses. Only thing missing is a sugar cookie!" - Marilyn
"It smells very inviting. The first sip was very strong but the after taste was nice and minty. The overwhelming alcohol flavor was a little off-putting, but it definitely gets better the more you drink… or maybe you just stop caring ;-) It’s definitely very pretty, although the idea of an opaque martini is a little strange. One Of these would be more than enough, based off it;s alcohol content, flavor and heaviness. - Stephanie
"The drink has great curb appeal, but the inside is a fixer - upper. The visual impression is good- the white snowy drink looks inviting, and the melting christmas candle look of the glass makes it look like a centerpiece. But the drink itself taste boring. There’s very little of interest to the flavor. The fluff adds sweetness, and the peppermint gives some complexity - but, ultimately, I was more interested in the chunks of candy cane at the bottom of the glass." - Glen
"Tastes like like a peppermint pattie - Very sweet but sippable. Would not add something like this a a bar though. Fun and festive! - Bethanne
Now this drink. This martini was fun and simple. We have been informed that this is the replica of the drink from Outback, but you all be the judge!
The Recipe(1 Drink):

- Gingerbread men for the top and crumbs to line the rim!
Using a food processor or blender take some of the gingerbread cookies and grind them up. Dip the rim of the glasses into club soda and then into the gingerbread crumbs.
