Advice from a snowflake: Keep your cool and take time to chill. When Christmas preparations get your tinsel in a tangle, stop and make a Snowflake Martini. Then sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy the perfect pairing of Vanilla Vodka and White Chocolate Liqueur. What better advice during the holidays?
As the festive season approaches, it’s time to deck the halls, wrap the presents, and indulge in delicious holiday libations. If you’re looking for the perfect drink to add a touch of elegance and winter wonder to your Christmas celebrations, look no further than the Snowflake Martini.
This delightful cocktail not only captures the essence of the season but also brings a frosty elegance to your glass. The combination of vodka, white chocolate liqueur, and heavy cream creates a deliciously sweet and creamy cocktail with a subtle cocoa twist reminiscent of a winter’s day.
This martini is the perfect cocktail for holiday parties and family get-togethers. Some recipes will call for sugar around the rim. The sugar adds an additional sweetness that the drink does not need but it does looks festive.

Check out these cute Valentine’s Day martini glasses called the ‘French Kiss.’ I love them. These martini glasses are not dishwasher safe, but for that once-a-year holiday, I’m ok washing them by hand.

Snowflake Martini Ingredients

With all of the Vodkas on the market, I use Stoli, Absolut, Ketel One, or Grey Goose to make a martini. For this recipe, I also used the Borgata White Chocolate liqueur.

You can’t mix a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!
And don’t forget the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these 2 that I recommend for everyday use. 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, great for stacking in the freezer, and the Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant. Still, finding a safe spot to lay it down in the freezer is harder.
I found these beautiful holiday martini glasses, which will be perfect when I entertain this holiday season. They also make an excellent gift for the martini lover on your list! Don’t forget to pick up a set for yourself.
How to make a Snowflake Martini
