Holiday Peppermint Martini

Peppermint Martinis around the holidays may not be a requirement, but they should be. Cheers!

Candy canes, whole, and crushed
Lime wedge
4 parts vanilla vodka*
1 part Peppermint Schnapps*
splash of grenadine
chilled martini glasses

Using a Mortar and Pestle, or sealable baggie and kitchen mallet - crush 1 to 2 candy canes into a fine powder to use on the rim of the martini glass. (If you don't have a mortar and pestle, a freezer bag and rolling pin work just as well). Pour the crushed candy cane onto a platter.

Wet the rim of the martini glass with the lime wedge, then dip the entire rim into the crushed candy and set the martini glass aside.

Fill a Cocktail Shaker with ice. Add vodka, peppermint schnapps, and grenadine. Shake vigorously for a full minute. Strain the mixture into prepared martini glass while leaving a little space between the rim and mix.

Garnish with a full sized - or mini candy cane, or fresh mint.
