Candy Cane Martini

My sister and brother-in-law can make a mean drink. From her Margaritas to his Limoncello Martinis... wow. At a recent birthday party he treated me to one of these beauties. Now if you love peppermint and you love candy canes, you will love this drink because it is heavy on the mint.  I hit him up for the recipe so I could share this beautiful shot with you. 

Candy Cane Martini

2 parts vodka
1 part creme de cocoa
1 part peppermint schnapps
a splash of grenadine for color

1. Shake all with ice.

2. Serve in a glass with the rim dipped in water and then dipped in finely crushed candy canes.
