Holiday martini recipes can be simple and dry, or fun and festive, like these recipes for a Godiva chocolate martini and an eggnog martini!
Remember, a great hostess always greats her guests with a great drink at the door, and if your holiday season has been anything like mine this year, you're going to need a stiff drink to make your way through the next few days. Unless your one of those people that gets violent, a good mixed drink will help you to relax, unwind and not look like you want to kill someone. It will help with conversation and laughter will come with more ease - heck, it may not even be fake at if you help yourself to a few. The people around you will also become much more jovial after a drink or two themselves and this years festivities may not actually end up with a tree being lit on fire, though I still recommend hiding the matches just in case.
To top it off, I know I always have trouble falling asleep on Christmas Eve with the anticipation of Santa Claus, stockings, and such, so a few of these babies are sure to drift me off to sleep with visions of sugar plums dancing through my head.
Here are the holiday martini recipes!
- 1 Oz Vodka
