For the ultimate festive experience, serve peppermint martinis at your Christmas Eve dinner party or New Year's Eve celebration. Peppermint martini is typically made with light vodka and dry vermouth, with peppermint schnapps as an acceptable substitute for creme de menthe. The unique kick comes from the clear grain spirit with aromatized fortified wine made from roots, spices, flowers, and seeds bark.

If you prefer a silkier taste and lower alcohol content, opt for creme de menthe instead of peppermint schnapps. Although both ingredients add an intense peppermint taste to the cocktail recipe, the grain alcohol used in schnapps makes it stronger than creme de menthe. For best results, drink extra cold to bring out the light shade of peppermint inside your glass.

Prepping the Peppermint Martini glass rim

Prepping the Peppermint Martini glass rim is a crucial step when you're entertaining guests with this festive cocktail. To create the perfect peppermint candy rim, you'll need to gather some supplies. Start by crushing peppermint candies into small pieces and placing them on a plate. Next, place grenadine syrup on another plate and dip the outer edge of your martini glass into the syrup.

To coat the glass rim with crushed candies, place them on a plate and roll the outer edge of the glass in them, rotating to ensure an even coating. Don't forget to hold the glass constant while you do this! If you want to be extra careful, use a plastic bag and rolling pin to crush your candies instead of doing it by hand.

If water works better for you than grenadine syrup, feel free to use that instead for dipping your martini glass rim. Once coated in crushed candy or sugar, your peppermint martini will look just as delicious as it tastes!
