Notes

Tips on making the Mistletoe Martini:
  • When choosing limes:
    • Always smell to make sure they still have a scent; that means they're fresh.
    • Pick them as green as you can and bypass the yellowish ones.
    • Pick the heavy ones because heavier means juicier.
  • I use raspberries as a garnish in this martini but you may also use cranberries
  • This cocktail can be made with mid range vodka but for martinis, I always prefer a premium brand, like Grey Goose.
  • People always ask me where I got the martini glasses featured in these photos. They're both from Crate & Barrel.  They are such pretty glasses and fun to serve cocktails in.
