12 Days of Cocktails: The North Pole

We are bringing you our 8th drink of our 12 Days of Cocktails segment. The North Pole cocktail is sweet and slightly chocolatey with just a hint of peppermint and ginger. Think gingerbread martini meets chocolate martini…basically it’s Christmas in a cup with a hit of vodka.

If you enjoy sweeter cocktails, these would be perfect for a night of Christmas tree decorating, or after a day hitting the stores hard. They’re a super fun way to celebrate the season. So relax, kick back, enjoy the tree lights, a nice roaring fire, and The North Pole cocktail.
