Peppermint Espresso Martini – My Jingle Jangle Cocktail

Peppermint Espresso Martini - My Jingle Jangle Cocktail

It is Thirsty Thursday and I’m coming to you with THE drink you need in your hand all Christmas long. I’m sharing my recipe for my Peppermint Espresso Martini aka My Jingle Jangle Cocktail.

I fell in love with espresso martinis one time when I was out and needed a little pick me up so that I could rally with friends (home girl can’t hang like she used to). Espresso and vodka – I mean it’s the sophisticated version of a Four Loco.

Chocolate and peppermint give this traditional espresso martini some festive holiday flavors. And it looks really pretty too! Scroll down for my Peppermint Espresso Martini aka My Jingle Jangle Cocktail.
