Deck the halls….now let’s make a new Christmas Martini! 🙂 I love trying to come up with new and exciting martini’s, so this year I looked around for a liqueur that I wouldn’t normally buy. I came across this pretty looking bottle with real gold flakes and tasted like cinnamon! It kind of looked like a winter snow globe. Now that was it….
‘Cinnamon Gold Flake Martini’
1 oz Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps
1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz rum
1 oz soda water
1/2 oz cranberry spritzer
6 fresh cranberries
1 tbsp sugar
1-2 drops red food colouring
Place sugar on a plate and add red food colouring. Mix together. Use a lime to rim the glass then place face down in the coloured sugar to cover the rim of the glass.
Add all the ingredients to a martini glass, a squeeze of lime, then add crushed ice. You can use a shaker if desired.
Delicious and festive. Serves 1
