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
- 1 Oz Ameretto
- 1 Oz Eggnog
Combine all ingredients and shake well. Dust with freshly grated nutmeg or cinnamon, if desired.
With two holiday martini recipes to choose from, how do you decide which one to make first?!
