Chocolate Peppermint Martini’s – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Tis’ the season for fun and festive cocktails.  Whether you prefer them sweet or super dry, there’s always room for something exciting to sip on during the holiday season.  This year I decided to go sweet with a minty finish for a dessert-like drink that can be enjoyed before or after a meal.

Cocktails are often drank as dessert for a splendid post-dinner finale.  The smooth characteristic of combining chocolate liqueur, peppermint schnapps and vodka create the most enjoyable drink for this special time of year.  It does remind me of a treat more than just a cocktail and that’s what makes it so fun.

You can make a larger batch ahead of time and double or triple my recipe in a pitcher, or enjoy them for two, quietly in front of a roaring fireplace while gazing into each others eyes.  These will definitely give you some crazing fresh breath and a perfect ending.
