Hello, it’s Brandy from Nutmeg Nanny. Faith and I are super excited for our Christmas event! We have been talking about Christmas since August…no lie! We love all sweet and savory holiday inspired treats and cannot wait to see what everyone submits. Here is the posting schedule:

Faith and I will be posting more seasonal recipes on our own blogs to give you more inspiration. As always, you don’t need to have a blog to participate. Remember, your recipe can be for anything that says Christmas to you, and you can submit as many recipes as you want. (For more information on how to participate, see our Rules.)
There is of course a prize for the winner! The prize this time around is the The Great Christmas Cookie Swap Cookbook.
Now onto the recipe! This is not exactly a sweet or a savory treat. It’s a liquor treat! On my personal blog I’m running an event called “The Twelve Boozy Days of Christmas” and I’m sharing that post on here today.
This Candy Cane Martini is delicious and super festive! Not only does it taste great but it looks great too! Obviously it’s heavy on the mint flavor and packs a nice little punch by incorporating only two ingredients – vodka and peppermint schnapps. So with an ingredient list so short and so full of alcohol I wouldn’t recommend drinking too many
Candy Cane Martini:
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 teaspoon peppermint schnapps
Mix all ingredients with ice in a shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Option: Garnish with small candy cane or create a candy cane “rimmer” with crushed candy canes.
