Peppermint White Mocha Martini

Traffic is ridiculous.  Walking into Target is like entering the Hunger Games.  Eccentric family members.  How many Secret Santas/White Elephants am I signed up for??!!!  Yep, this time of year can be stressful and draining at times.  There’s nothing like taking the edge off of a crazy day than with a good drink.  This drink reminds of us of those Peppermint White Mocha lattes from Starbucks.  Rim some martini glasses with melted white chocolate and crushed peppermint.  For parties, you can rim the glasses ahead of time and stick them in the freezer.

So whip up a batch at your next get together or better yet, curl up by the fire with one of these with a good book by the fireplace…all…by…yourself.  Tuck your kiddos to bed and enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 oz  Godiva White Chocolate liquor
  • 1 oz vanilla vodka
  • ½ oz Peppermint Schnapps
  • 1 oz. of cream or half & half


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pour all ingredients in mixer with ice and shake.  Strain and pour into martini glass

**We may have enjoyed these too much.  Stay tuned for pictures. 🙂

Gift of Giving (Experience Series Part 3)

Gift of Experiences

I always say I’m willing to spend money for a great experience…and really, really good food.  Traveling, hobbies, and shows are just a few great things to experience.  Go beyond the movie theater gift card or spa package, give them an experience that haven’t tried .  Do you have a friend, co-worker or family member that always talks about wishing they could learn how to rock climb or go horseback riding or never seen a broadway show?

LivingSocial and Groupon often have great deals for local experiences.  Check out your local university or acting company for plays.
