Kimberly Hilton of Red the Steakhouse Makes Thin Mint Martini
It's absolutely official: Holiday season is here.
Thanksgiving might be over, but with shopping season in full swing, it's only going to get crazier from here on out.
Between work parties, friendly get-togethers, Christmas events, New Year's celebrations, pot lucks, and whatever else, the time to expand your seasonal recipe repertoire is here.
Most people bring cookies, cakes, or seasonal casseroles; however, as good as these dishes may be, they get kind of old after a million social events.
Cocktails, on the other hand, are always a welcomed ingredient at any party.
Kimberly Hilton of Red the Steakhouse walks us through a holiday cocktail recipe that will be the life of any party.
A signature of the Boca Raton location, the holiday appropriate cocktail was developed by general manager Allison Glantz. The base spirit of the cocktail is the newest vodka flavor to be released by Ciroc vodka, owned by Sean "Diddy" Combs; it was the first amaretto vodka to be released onto the market.
Thin Mint Martini
1 ounce Ciroc Amaretto Vodka
1/2 ounce Bailey's Vanilla Cinnamon
1/4 ounce Green Crème de Menthe
1/4 ounce Creme De Cacao
Splash of cream
Step One: Rim a martini glass with chocolate syrup and Oreo cookie crumbs.
Step Two: In a cocktail mixer, combine all of the ingredients and shake over ice; pour it into the prepared glass.
Step Three: Enjoy!
