Christmas Cocktail Cranberry Peppermint Martini

Sharing is caring!

We made cranberry peppermint martinis!

During the year I purchased a couple of new styles in martini glasses, adding to my collection of elegant dishes.
These new ones have inspired me to make good use of my elegant stemware during the holidays when there’s often more company coming over.
One of my besties was hanging out with me over the weekend and she sampled the series of holiday recipes that I have coming to the blog.

This Cranberry Peppermint Martini recipe I had the idea for, but together we actually composed the “mixology”, if you will, for this festive beverage (now I’m a mixologist, LOL!).
We were so pleased with the taste, and over the top about nailing a holiday look, too! This is one you have to enjoy with family and friends this holiday season. If you don’t already hold the crown of “hostess with the mostess” this one is sure to don you the title!

Instructions

Shake the vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice (we squeezed ours fresh), and peppermint syrup (see directions below to make this yourself, too!) in a shaker with ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
We frosted the rim of our glasses with the crushed candy canes after dipping each rim into the peppermint simple syrup. Finish it all off with a lime wheel, mint leaves and a few cranberries floating to garnish.
