White Chocolate Peppermint Bark Martini
Ingredients per drink
2 oz. white chocolate liqueur
1/2 oz. vanilla vodka*
1/2 oz. peppermint schnapps
Splash of milk or cream, to taste
White chocolate, melted, for rimming the glass
Crushed peppermint candies, for rimming the glass
Whipped cream, for serving (optional)
*To make your own vanilla vodka, steep a couple of vanilla beans in 8 oz. of vodka for 5-10 days. Or, replace the vanilla vodka in this recipe with plain vodka, plus a 1/4-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract.
1. Melt the white chocolate in a shallow dish, and dip the rim of the glass into it. Shake off any excess, then dip into the crushed peppermint candies. Place glass in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to set.
2. Shake liqueurs with ice, then pour into chilled glass. Add milk or cream, to taste.
3. Top with fresh whipped cream and more crushed peppermint candies, for garnish.
Warning: do not attempt to bite rim of glass.
