You can also use white chocolate liqueur if you prefer. 

To make this drink you need:

  • White Chocolate Syrup
  • Baileys Irish Cream
  • Half and Half or thick cream
  • Peppermint Schnapps
  • Ice

For the rim of the glass (optional):

  • Vanilla frosting 
  • Crushed candy cane or peppermint candy pieces

This Christmas cocktail is so easy to make! You can have it ready in minutes.

Plus – simply double the recipe to make it for a crowd! 

Step 1: Prepare Your Glass

Peppermint Bark Martini Ingredients

Before you get started on your cocktail, you need to create that beautiful candy cane rim on your glass. 

First you will need some crushed candy canes. 

You can buy these from bulk stores already crushed but it is super easy to put a few whole candy canes in a plastic bag and then bash them with a hammer. 

Next you will want to grab some white frosting (the canned kind is fine) and gently roll your glass in it so the whole rim is covered. 

Then, dip the glass in the candy cane pieces and set aside. 

I normally do this step about 10 minutes before  I want to serve my drink so that the frosting has time to set. 

Now it is time to make your drink! 

Step 2: Mix The Ingredients

Pour into the glass.

How To Garnish Your Peppermint Bark Martini

With the cute candy cane rim, you don’t need to do anything else if you don’t want.

However, if you would like to go a step further, a piece of peppermint bark balanced on the rim of the glass looks (and tastes!) great. 

You could also hang a candy cane from the rim of the glass too.
