Holiday Kahlúa Peppermint Espresso Martini

Peppermint Martini

Let's talk hostess gifts for a moment... With the numerous holiday gatherings and parties this season, having a stash of hostess gifts on hand can be a real sanity saver. But what can you stock up on that would be a good fit for all occasions?

A bottle of wine seems like a safe choice -- but then you have to consider what's on the menu and/or whether or not the recipient prefers red or white wine. I have enough trouble choosing a wine to drink for myself with so many options, let alone for someone else.

Kahlua Liqueur

Why not consider a bottle of Kahlúa instead? You're sure to easily select a flavor that suits any occasion. Choose from Original, Cinnamon Spice, French Vanilla, Mocha, Hazelnut, and Especial, plus limited edition holiday flavors are available in Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha.

You should definitely try the Kahlúa Peppermint Mocha flavor while it's available -- it's perfect for the holiday season! I love it in this peppermint espresso martini, and you won't believe how simple it is to make. Just combine Kahlúa Peppermint Mocha and your favorite vodka with a shot of fresh brewed espresso. Shake with ice and pour!

I chose to garnish the rims of the martini glasses with a little crushed peppermint candies. It's the perfect little festive touch!
