Creamy Fluffed Peppermint Mocha Martini

Christmas may be over, but we’re still in the holiday season until New Year’s.

So you might need a cocktail recipe up your sleeve.

Maybe you need it because you’re throwing a party and you’re looking for a signature cocktail.

Or maybe you need it because you’ve spent too much time with your family and you’re going a little insane.

Doesn’t matter the reason.  This is a nice festive cocktail that takes advantage of seasonally flavored Kahlua.  I can’t tell you how excited I was when I found the Peppermint Mocha Kahlua at the liquor store in November!

This martini has pretty much seen me through the holiday season.  From wrapping presents while watching Chevy Chases’s Christmas Vacation to de-stressing after a hectic week at work.  It’s delicious!

Note: works with milk too, although your martini won’t be as rich.
