Holiday Happy Hour

It’s always happy hour somewhere! Before I leave town to spend Christmas with my family, I am hosting a special holiday happy hour featuring peppermint martinis. I think I’m quite the bartender but I struggled to find one recipe that worked for me. So I tweaked a few into my own and came up with this yummy goodness.IMG_1228I was inspired by recipes from A Spicy Perspective and All Recipes. Noting that a standard shot glass is approximately 1.5 oz, I made the following changes to create my own version:

  • 1 shot peppermint schnapps
  • half shot vanilla vodka
  • third shot Baileys Original Irish Cream
  • 1 shot simple syrup (hot water & 4 packets raw sugar)

Merry Christmas! Happy happy hour holidays!
