I’m starting my Christmas Sweets Week off with a cocktail. This martini has become my new favorite Christmas cocktail. It seriously tastes just like a frosted sugar cookie!
I served it in these gorgeous Joy Jolt Carre martini glasses. They are like functional pieces of art! They are shatterproof and dishwasher-safe.
The recipe below makes two generous martinis. It’s also quite strong, so feel free to adjust to suit your tastes. Feel free to rim the glass if you like. I think white sanding sugar would add a nice sparkle.
If you’re going to garnish the drink with colored sprinkles, as shown above, be aware that they should be added at the last minute. They will start to dissolve in the drink, and the colors will run.
