Christmas Holiday Cocktail – Let it Snowtini…

Here’s a wonderful Christmas and holiday cocktail recipe we featured last year. Enjoy this Recipe Rewind…

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

As I was looking for inspiration I came across this recipe that I thought would be perfect!

Let It Snowtini


  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz amaretto
  • 1 oz heavy cream (I used half & half)
  • Nutmeg


Put several ice cubes in a shaker.

Add the vodka, amaretto, & cream and shake vigorously.

Poor into martini glass and garnish with nutmeg.

The 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.

Ingredients for Let it, amaretto, and creamI love this 1940’s vintage ice bucket we got at a friend’s antique store…

Adding ice to shaker for Let it SnowtiniI used a larger shot glass, as I was doubling the recipe.
