A few years ago Matt and I saw this recipe pop up as a sponsored ad on Facebook for a Peppermint Bark Martini. Of course I didn’t stop and save the recipe and I’m pretty sure it was not very healthy either. The recipe was full of heavy cream and lots of added sugars. So Matt and I took it among ourselves to come up with our own healthier alternative minus the heavy cream. So here is what we made and it has been a favorite in our house during the holidays for years now!
1 oz Peppermint Bark Pinnacle Vodka
2 oz of Coffee Liqueur
1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup almond milk or coconut milk
Pour all ingredients into a shaker cup and shake up the drink. Pour into a martini glass and serve. You could top the rim with some crushed candy canes if you want to give it a more festive look.
