Thinking of Drinking: The Nutcracker Martini

The holiday season is here and there is no better way to bring cheer than celebrating with a festive cocktail.  This sweet drink is perfect for dessert.  Enjoy!

From the Capital Cooking Cookbook

1 shot
General John Stark Vodka
½ shot amaretto

1 shot white cream de cacao
Maraschino cherry
Chocolate syrup
Crushed Almonds

Combine all of the liquors in a shaker full of ice. Place chocolate syrup around the edge of the martini glass and dip in the crushed almonds. Strain liquor into the martini glass and garnish with the cherry. Creamy and delicious! I'll continue to share more fabulous cocktail recipes to make sure your ready for the holiday parties this season.
