Christmas Cocktail – Let It Snowtini Martini Recipe

I don’t know about y’all and your family, but ours loves a good cocktail…or special bevs as we like to call them. We especially love a good martini recipe. I wanted to do something a little different for the holidays and thought that a dessert martini was the way to go.

As I was looking for inspiration I came across a martini recipe that I thought would be perfect, but wanted to make it a little more my own! I try to keep a decently stocked bar, so I had vodka and amaretto on hand. I also thought a sprinkle of nutmeg would be perfect for the season. And I always have half and half on hand. Voila…Let it Snowtini!!

The martini recipe could not be simpler!  I had half & half on hand, so I used this instead of heavy cream. Since half & half isn’t as thick, I added a little bit more to the recipe.

My family has lots of cocktails for the holidays (or really any time of the year), but we always love sharing new ones and this martini recipe will definitely become one of our Christmas Cocktails. What Christmas cocktail do you prefer? Cheers Y’all!
