Wedding Cocktail Hour: Winter Martinis

Custom calligraphy by Moira Events

A winter wedding deserves to have special martini as much as a summer wedding deserves a sweet watermelon or pineapple flavored cocktail. A oldie but a goodie on Ourweddingplus.com helps brides decide on wedding cocktails from liquors, colors, prices and ease of preparation.  The article says it best, if price is a object of concern, you can save money by offering one or two specialty cocktails during cocktail hour. Adam Hughes, our Bar Outlets Manager and mixologist gave us two martini recipes for winter weddings.

Frostini Martini

You’ll need:

  • 1 part Starbucks Cream Liqueur
  • 1 part Starbucks Coffee Liqueur
  • 1/4 part DeKuyper Peppermint Schnapps
  • fresh mint sprig for garnish


Pour the ingredients with a little bit of ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a frozen martini glass. Garnish with mint (optional).

Holiday Peppermint Martini

You’ll need:

  • 5 oz. vanilla Vodka
  • 2 oz. white crème de menthe
  • 1/2 oz. Peppermint Schnapps


Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a candy cane.

Sip and enjoy!
