Making the White Christmas Martini.

One of the many great benefits to living in southwest Montana is that we are almost certainly guaranteed a white Christmas (and often a white Thanksgiving, and even a white Halloween). Celebrate this good fortune with a great drink: a White Christmas Martini. This adults-only beverage is a bit like a milkshake for grownups, and is sure to be a hit with guests.

2 oz vanilla vodka
2 oz white chocolate liqueur
1 oz white creme de cacao
1 oz half-and-half
Honey and coarse sanding sugar for rim garnish

Pour the honey into a shallow dish and put the sanding sugar in another shallow dish. Coat the rim of the glass in the honey; then dip the rim in the sugar to coat evenly. Set the glass aside. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the vodka, white chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao, and half-and-half. Shake vigorously and strain into the prepared martini glass. Enjoy!
