This delicious and chic cocktail is the perfect libation for your holiday party.  Who doesn't love peppermint candy canes?  Serve festive green apple martinis alongside for a classic Christmas green and red theme. Cheers!

Peppermint Martini
5 ounces of vodka
2 ounces white creme de menthe
1/2 ounce peppermint schnapps
mini candy canes

Finely crush peppermint candies. Dip rim of martini glass in water and then dip into crushed candy to attach candy to glass.  Pour ingredients into shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into martini glass.
