Peppermint Bark Martini 

Servings: 1 cocktail

Chocolate martinis are delightfully retro, and here’s a creamy spin on the classic that tastes just like boozy white chocolate peppermint bark, complete with a crushed peppermint candy rim. Break this one out for your holiday get-togethers; it also pairs well with corny Christmas movies, cozy fireplaces, and snowy evenings. 


1 mini candy cane or starlight mint, crushed

1 ½ ounces white chocolate liqueur

½ ounce peppermint Schnapps

2 ounces vodka 

2 ounces half and half


  1. Sprinkle the crushed peppermint candy onto a saucer or small plate, and a sprinkle of water on another saucer. Dip your martini or coupe glass in the water, then into the crushed peppermint to coat the rim.  
  2. Fill a martini shaker with ice, then add the cocktail ingredients. Shake until frothy, then pour into your prepared glass.
