When you’re hosting a holiday party, you always hope for perfection… like one you’d see on the big screen. A fresh blanket of glittery snow on the ground outside, a crackling fire burning in the fireplace, and all the people you love most laughing and having a merry time together. To add to this movie-like affair, there must be a festive drink to make things extra merry. The White Christmas Martini not only looks the part, with its white-as-snow appearance, but it tastes just as jolly, too. Creamy, sweet, and full of Yuletide cheer, this White Christmas Martini is the festive spirit you should serve to make your bash all the more brilliant!
