Let’s talk about the holidays.  I feel like once Thanksgiving is over it’s game on for holiday parties and get togethers.   It’s one of those times when I see people that I haven’t seen all year because suddenly everyone wants to have a party and invite everyone they know.

Having a holiday party? Make these fun Candy Cane Martinis!

Don’t get me wrong, for the past 3 years we’ve had a holiday party and it’s been really fun.  I work all week to make appetizers, desserts, and cocktails that everyone will love.  It’s a ton of work but it’s always fun and we always have a lot of people.  Sadly, we won’t be having our party this year because baby J is not quite 4 months old yet and having a house full of people partying half the night wouldn’t be much fun for him.

Everything you need to make a Candy Cane Martini!

But just because we aren’t having a big holiday party doesn’t mean we won’t be having small gatherings.   I’ll still be cooking up appetizers and desserts and anytime we have people over I like to have a signature cocktail.   Since it is Christmas time I wanted a cocktail that worked with the holiday.

When I think of Christmas I think of eggnog, gingerbread, and candy canes.  I recently made a Slow Cooker Gingerbread Latte that was amazing so I didn’t want to make another gingerbread beverage.  I looked at what we had in our liquor stash and had everything I needed for a Candy Cane Martini.

Sip on this delicious Candy Cane Martini this holiday!

Now I made a Candy Cane Martini years ago but it was totally different.  This one is creamy and totally delicious.  It tastes of chocolate and candy canes.   It has just 4 ingredients that are shaken together and poured into a candy cane rimmed martini glass.   You can even garnish it with a miniature candy cane if you have them!
