Peppermint Martini – Holiday Drink Recipe

This year I am hosting Christmas Day as well as a pre-Christmas dinner. One thing I love to have when hosting a party is a festive drink! Randy husband went to the wine store and picked up Smirnoff’s limited edition peppermint twist. You can make a variety of drinks with Baileys to ginger beer, hot chocolate, or just a straight chilled peppermint twist shot.

The bottle looks so festive on my bar and it even has a scratch and sniff peppermint smell which I think is a really cute touch! If you love the taste of peppermint then this is a great addition to your holiday party!

There are a few good recipes but I’m planning on making the Smirnoff Peppermint Martini.

  • 1.25 oz Smirnoff Peppermint Twist 
  • 0.5 Baileys Original Irish Cream Liquor 

Shake ingredients over ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg and a mini candy cane.

Another way to make this drink is to add chocolate to the peppermint martini. I am such a chocolate girl that I think chocolate added to anything is amazing!
