During the holidays, I like to make a Candy Cane Martini. Just combine 1.5 oz vodka, 1.5 oz peppermint Schnapps, and 0.5 oz fat-free sweetened condensed milk in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake, strain into a martini glass, and garnish with a mini candy cane.—Bethenny Franke;
Better Than... Christmas Poke Cake. Peppermint creamer, hot fudge, Oreos, and Andes White Chocolate Peppermint pieces complete this masterpiece.
