New Limited Time Only Holiday-Inspired Flavored Vodka

SMIRNOFF Vodka added a new peppermint-flavored vodka specialty to its portfolio for the holiday season: SMIRNOFF Peppermint Twist!   Made with natural peppermint flavors, Peppermint Twist delivers the mouth-watering taste of sweet candy canes, balanced by the soothing cool of peppermint. Also unique is that the bottle has a special scratch-and-sniff feature that gives any room a nice peppermint aroma.

Here are three recipes that I've personally tried - they'll be the highlight of any holiday cocktail party!

Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Shot

1.5 oz Smirnoff Peppermint Twist

Shake over ice and strain into a chilled shot glass with crushed peppermint rim.


Smirnoff Peppermint Martini

1.25 oz Smirnoff Peppermint Twist
0.5 oz Baileys Original Irish Cream

Shake ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with grated nutmeg and a mini candy cane.

Smirnoff Peppermint Hot Chocolate

1.5 oz Smirnoff Peppermint Twist

6 oz hot chocolate

Pour shot of Smirnoff Peppermint Twist into hot chocolate.  Garnish with whipped cream and a peppermint stick
