A really easy way to garnish your martini is to rim the glass with holiday colored sanding sugar. 

To do this, just put some honey in a shallow bowl or saucer. In a second saucer, places some sanding sugar in green and red. 

To rim your glass:

  1. Dip your glass in the honey. 
  2. Next, dip it in the sanding sugar. Set aside for a minute before pouring the cocktail in the glass.
