This Candy Cane Martini is more than just creamy mint satisfaction. Subtle flavor of coffee wisps through the cocktail for refreshing warmth as well. Serve the Candy Cane Martini as an after dinner dessert martini or save this one for snuggling by the fire. This also makes an excellent Christmas cocktail for obvious candy cane striped reasons.
