Whether you live in the southern hemisphere or are enjoying an unseasonably warm winter, this candy cane martini recipe is the ideal holiday libation. From Leah Bergman at the blog Freutcake, the Peppermint White Christmas cocktail is very festive, but is still light enough to be enjoyed in warmer weather.
To recreate this champagne cocktail at home, you will need chilled champagne, white creme de cocoa and candy canes. Instead of being served in traditional martini glasses, this version is served in flutes to accommodate the long shape of the candy cane. Or, you could use the more customary glass with a miniature candy cane instead.
The candy cane martini is a pretty addition to any holiday party.
