One of my favorite Holiday Cocktail Concoctions is a little ditty I came up with a couple years ago – a Peppermint Martini. Well, to clarify, I didn’t actually invent them. Someone who’s probably a mixologist did, but I took what they did and made it my own… I love a martini – as long as it’s a vodka martini. I can’t bring myself to drink something that smells like a Christmas Tree! Even at Christmas!
Many of the recipes you’ll find online will include a white chocolate liquor. Cue Crickets. I’m not sure there’s a liquor store in South Dakota that would carry such a thing. There is a recipe available if you wish to make your own, but I’m kind of all about improvising. Ranching makes you nothing, if not resourceful.
This is my Christmas Present to y’all- yummy goodness in the form of spirits to get you in the spirit if you’re not already.
Merry Christmas and Happy Trails!
