King Cake Martini

Ingredients

1 ½ cup granulated sugar
Yellow, green and purple food coloring
3 glass jars with lids
1 small round plate
1 martini glass
Vanilla Vodka
Ice
Shaker
1 lime slice
Bailey's
Orange liquor
Amaretto
Cinnamon

Preparation

To make the colored sugar for the rim of the martini glass, put ½ cup of sugar in the glass jar. Then put 3 to 4 drops of one of the colors into a jar.

Put the lid on the jar and shake rapidly until the sugar is evenly covered.

Repeat these steps to make the other two colors. Once you have all three colors made, pour a small amount of each color side by side on a plate. Then slide the sliced lime around the rim of the glass. Dip the rim into the colored sugar. The sugar should rest neatly at the rim of the glass.

Next, fill your shaker half way with ice. Add 2 oz. of Vanilla Vodka, 1 oz. of Baileys, 1/2 oz. of orange liquor, and 1/2 oz. of Amaretto. Shake until chilled. Pour the mixture into the glass. Finally, top off your festive martini with a pinch of cinnamon.

Enjoy!
