Notes on Candy Cane Martini

  • You can use green creme de menthe here if you can’t find white/clear creme de menthe. The taste is the same. Your cocktail will just be light green instead of white.
  • While I recommend a high milk fat, whatever milk you have on hand will work. Your cocktail won’t be as creamy, but it will still be tasty.
