Speaking of traditions...Christmas. Yeah I know it's over but it's my favorite and I am just
obsessed in love with it!
It's a time for celebrating with the ones you love. For as long as I can remember we would go to church on Christmas Eve and head over to Charley's Crab for a delish dinner. We would then come home open gifts, drink champagne and eat dessert.

A few years ago my sister and I decided to add 'drink martinis' to the list of traditions.
Yes, traditions. Because Christmas ain't Christmas without a little booze.
The first was the plain old chocolate martini and it has evolved since then. We made s'mores martinis and cherry martinis, but this one is the Chocolate Peppermint.
It's so simple and so good and so much fun to make!
Well unless you are sans cocktail shaker. Then you think you are smart with your homemade to glasses shaker.
No, not smart. Messy.
Anyways...here is the yummy recipe. MAKE IT. Christmas in January??
Chocolate Peppermint Martini
2 oz Vanilla Vodka
1 oz Peppermint Schnapps
2 oz Godiva Chocolate Liquor
Splash of heavy cream
2 Candy Canes, crushed
1/4 Chocolate Syrup
Place candy canes in a plastic bag and smash with a mallet of a heavy bottomed pot. Once crushed pour on a small plate and pour chocolate syrup onto a small plate as well. Dip martini glasses in chocolate syrup and then into candy canes.
Drizzle chocolate syrup around the sides of the martini glass and chill in the fridge overnight. You can serve them right away, but I like to let the syrup set up in the fridge.
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and pour into chilled martini glasses. Enjoy! :)
