Merry Martini

by Dec 16, 2021Recipes, South Brunswick

This martini with notes of white chocolate and peppermint will delight your senses and soothe your holiday stress.

I love the holidays, but after a long day of shopping, wrapping and baking I look forward to a white chocolate peppermint martini. It is the perfect end to a hectic holiday.

I prefer to shop local and typically find more unique and quality gifts at small family-owned businesses that I can stroll in on my own time. However, my family has a tradition of meeting at the outlets to shop together. I usually buy those last-minute generic gifts like lotion or blankets from the outlets, but a full day of shopping with the family amidst the crowds can suck the fun of the holiday out of you. When I get home, I quickly wrap those gifts and stick them under the tree before they are seen. Then, my spouse and our son have our own tradition of baking and decorating cookies that we give to the teachers, co-workers and neighbors.

It can all be so exhausting.

What better way to get back into the holiday spirit than to sit back in my comfy chair with a fluffy blanket, prop my fuzzy-socked feet up on the coffee table in front of the fire and enjoy a treat made just for me? The creamy-pepperminty deliciousness in this martini always relieves some of that holiday tension.

It takes a bit of extra effort to rim the glass and mix all the ingredients, but after giving so much of myself around the season, I deserve this moment of serenity while I sip my martini … and so do you.
