I’m excited to be partnering with Torani Syrup once again to create a delicious holiday drink. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
This Peppermint White Chocolate Martini makes the perfect holiday cocktail! Made with Torani Sugar Free Peppermint Syrup, you can enjoy all the extra flavor without worrying about the extra calories!
There are so many things to love about the holidays! There’s the Christmas music, the food and of course, the decorations! Nothing makes me feel more festive than when I’m setting up our Christmas village or decorating the trees (yes, we have several) with my family.
Well, there is one thing that makes me feel even more festive. Decorating is even more fun when I have a holiday cocktail in my hand.
Every year I come up with a fun new drink for the holidays! For the past couple years my drinks have been better than ever because I discovered a secret ingredient that makes all my drinks taste delish…Torani Sugar Free Syrup.
I love these syrups because they add so much flavor to every drink, whether it’s coffee, hot cocoa or Christmas cocktails. They mix well and are made with thoughtfully sourced and simple ingredients. Plus, sometimes we just need to treat ourselves, especially with how crazy busy the holidays can be. Torani syrups are an easy way to do just that and take ordinary drinks to a whole new level!
Since Christmas and peppermint go hand in hand, I thought I see just how creative I could get with the Sugar Free Peppermint flavor. It had been way too long since I’d had martinis so I thought I’d spoil myself a little with a Peppermint White Chocolate Martini!
How To Make A Peppermint White Chocolate Martini
The beauty of this drink is that it may seem fancy but it’s so simple to make. All you need are five ingredients and five minutes!
You’ll want to start by decorating your glass. I was already in the decorating mood so I figured I’d go all out.
Pour a couple of tablespoons of Torani Syrup onto a plate.
Dip the rim of your glass into the syrup.
Now dip the glass into crushed peppermint (you can crush your own peppermint candies or buy them pre-crushed where you buy holiday sprinkles).
How pretty is this? It makes your Christmas cocktail even more festive!
Now, pour white chocolate liquor, vanilla vodka, Creme de Cacao and half & half into a shaker with ice.
Add an ounce of Torani Sugar Free Peppermint Syrup.
Pour it into your martini glass and you’ve got a delicious holiday cocktail.
I drizzled a few candy melts over the top and now I had a problem. It was almost too pretty to drink. Don’t worry, I didn’t let that stop me!
It tasted every bit as good as it looked and the combination of vanilla, white chocolate and peppermint flavors was perfection!
Now I was totally in the holiday spirit and ready to decorate. I turned up the holiday music and set up my Christmas village.
I’ll definitely have to make another one of these Christmas martinis for when I pull out all the trees and ornaments!
