Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine creme de cacao, vodka, and vanilla-flavored vodka in a cocktail shaker. Secure lid on shaker and shake vigorously.

  • Spread sugar onto a flat plate wider than your martini glasses. Run the orange wedge along the lip of each martini glass to assure it's moistened all the way around; dip martini glasses in sugar to coat.

  • Divide remaining ice between the martini glasses. Strain the cocktail into the glasses.

Cook's Notes:

Creme de cacao comes in clear or dark. The first looks more 'sparkly,' and the second looks more 'chocolate-y.' They taste the same, so it just depends on your visual preferences!

Garnish finished martinis with small candy canes or a chocolate candy.

Editor's Note:

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the sugar and the orange used to rim the glasses. The actual amount of the sugar consumed will vary.

I hate to rate my own recipe but I couldn't figure out another way to add a comment! After experimenting some more I've decided I prefer using only plain vodka and adding a drop (1/4 tsp. for this recipe) of pure vanilla extract. Yum! Read More
