If you love the refreshing taste of a peppermint, this holiday-inspired cocktail is just what the (ahem) doctor ordered!

There are a lot of candy cane martini recipes on the web, but this version isn’t as sweet as the other candy cane recipes.  So, it’s a great complement to the holiday cookies I over-indulge on this time of year.

Ingredients —

1½ Ounces of Vodka
1 Teaspoon Peppermint Schnapps
Sugar for the glass rim

Directions —

1. Mix all ingredients with ice in a shaker.
2. Dip a chilled martini glass into the sugar mixture.  If you prefer, you can dip your glass into a crushed candy cane.
3. Strain into the chilled martini glass.




Love & Soul Always, Kay
