Mistletoe Martini

Welcome to day seven of The Twelve Boozy Days of Christmas!

Oh man I’m cutting it close today.  I almost forgot to put up my post! I was in the kitchen all day melting chocolate and making delicious caramel nutella crisp cookies. After I finally sat down I felt like it would be in my best interest to not move for a couple of hours 🙂 Then for dinner my most lovely boyfriend took me to The Melting Pot. We got my favorite meal. Cheese and chocolate. Yum…….

Now onto the martini.  The original recipe called for cranberry tea but I decided to use pomegranate tea since that is what I had on hand. I found it to be refreshing and delicious – perfect for any holiday party.

    I love cheese fondue but have never been to the Melting Pot. Your Mistletoe Martini sounds really good. I do have some pomegranate tea and vodka. This will be a nice cocktail for the Christmas party.
