Pepperminty Chocolatini – Holiday In a Glass
Godiva white chocolate liqueur with swirls of peppermint schnapps – for those who prefer to drink their dessert.
I’m an equal opportunity dessert consumer. And although I’m not a huge fan of sugary sweet libations, I can certainly entertain one of these martinis in lieu of dessert. Served chilled, this decadent white chocolate drink with its burst of peppermint goodness is like winter wonderland in a glass.
As it is my first full-fledged winter season in the east coast, I’ve been doing my snow dance to the snowstorm gods. But to no avail, NYC has yet to see white powder on our sidewalks as of today. Rumor has it though, that a winter storm is bound for Manhattan this weekend. I’ll keep my fingers crossed but until now, I’ll settle for this drinkable snow storm.
|1 1/2||ounces vanilla vodka|
|1||oz. Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur|
|1||oz. peppermint schnapps|
|2||ounces heavy cream or half & half|

- Coat the rim of the martini glass with simple syrup and garnish with crushed peppermint candy. Place the martini glasses in the freezer well in advance for a very frosty drink (optional). When ready to serve, combine vodka, chocolate liqueur, peppermint schnapps and cream in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into frosted martini glasses and serve immediately.
