White Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Martini Print

Christmas time and the holidays are a great time to get creative for parties and get-togethers and this cocktail is the perfect fit. I love serving these pretty peppermint drinks before or after dinner. It combines the smooth taste of white chocolate with the spicy taste of the peppermint, making it the perfect holiday cocktail. Get my recipe below the video.

White Chocolate Peppermint Martini

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Start to Finish: 10 minutes

Servings: 1 martini


  • 2 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz peppermint Schnapps
  • 2 oz white chocolate liquor
  • 2 peppermint candies crushed
  • 2 tablespoons marshmallow sundae topping


Coat the rim of a martini glass with some marshmallow topping and crushed peppermint candies. Drizzle some marshmallow on the inside of the glass and place in the freezer.

In a shaker with ice, add the vodka, peppermint schnapps, and the white chocolate liqueur. Shake for a minute. Remove glass from freezer. Pour mix from shaker into glass and sprinkle with crushed peppermint.

Cooking Tips:

Several glasses can be made ahead of time and the recipe can be doubled or tripled and mixed in a pitcher to serve to a crowd.

If you donโ€™t have a measuring cup that measures ounces you can use a tablespoon.

2 tablespoons = 1 oz

Hey Sugar!

Love the recipe! I have tried it before and fell in love. I am having a Christmas party this weekend and will have about 15-20 people coming. I plan on having the cocktail as our signature drink. You mentioned that you can do it in a bigger batch. How do you suppose I should do it for that many people? Any help would be appreciated since I want to stay away from having to make them all individually.

I premake the glasses and put them in the freezer and then make a pitcher of the drink and keep it in the fridge. You may want to do smaller glasses like tumblers or do them in small jelly jars so you can fit that many in the fridge.

Enjoy! :)
