Ingredients you’ll need to make a Peppermint Martini
This Peppermint Martini is made with Vanilla Vodka. Both Stoli and Absolut make excellent mid-priced Vodkas. Still, the Peppermint Bark RumChata makes this martini so unique. You can add a bit of half & half, optional.
You can’t make a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but this one from OXO is my favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak, and the cap measures from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces. Dishwasher safe, you can’t go wrong with OXO.
And remember the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these 2 that I recommend. Joy Jolt set of 6 martini glasses in multi-colors and Crafthouse by Fortessa, set of 4 martini glasses. They are both dishwasher-safe. Joy Jolt is a short martini glass suitable for stacking on the shelf in the freezer. The Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant, but more challenging to find a safe spot in the freezer. I love them both!
How to make a Peppermint Martini
Pour the Vanilla Vodka, RumChata, and half & half into a shaker with ice and let it sit for a minute. Shake well and pour the strained liquid into a chilled martini glass.
