History of the Peppermint Martini
The Peppermint Martini is a festive rendition of the so-called Martinis that only have the glass in common with the traditional Martini. Like the Key Lime Martini, Pornstar Martini and Candy Corn Martini, it’s more of a dessert in a glass to serve during the holidays and at parties to win over the crowd after a delicious meal.
