This Snowflake Martini creates a beautiful, winter wonderland with the flavors of Blue Curacao, pineapple juice and coconut. Serve it with a coconut flaked rim surrounded by a blanket of snow for holiday entertaining or special events.
This post is going to be short and sweet due to all the illnesses going on over here (4 infected eyes, 2 infected ears and a giant MARTIIINIII). This is going to be an unforgettable birthday weekend for sure. That is probably why all of my blog creations seem to be cocktails lately. Who doesn’t love a good excuse to drink before noon on the weekend?
I have really been craving martinis lately (nothing to do with holiday stress and sick kiddos). Luckily, my fully stocked bar had all of the necessary ingredients to throw this together without having to run to the store. A good quality vodka (not the plastic jug kind) is always recommended when making a martini. A splash of Blue Curacao creates the most beautiful shade of blue when mixed with a bit of pineapple juice for this winter wonderland effect.
A good rim job is essential when creating a foo foo drink like this one. Have plenty of honey on hand to really dip that glass into before loading with coconut. It may be necessary to really press on some of the coconut by hand to get a good coating. Did I mention how much I’m loving these glasses I just got? They really work well with the snowy theme going on here.
If you are looking for more great holiday cocktails, I highly recommend my Gingerbread Martini, Christmas Sangria, Caramel Creme Brulee White Russian or Salted Caramel Chocolate Martini. Whoops…this list got a bit longer than anticipated. There are just too many good ones to choose from, so why not make them all?
