Winter Wonderland Peppermintini

I ran across this drink recipe and thought it looked really good! I have never tried it, but how cute for a Christmas party! Can't wait to taste it =)
1 1/2 oz. (3 tbsp.) 80-proof vodka
2 tsp. Coffee-mate Sugar Free French Vanilla powdered creamer
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
Optional Garnish: 1 small candy cane

Directions: Place powdered creamer and sweetener in a glass. Add 1/4 cup warm water and stir to dissolve.
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add creamer mixture, vodka, and peppermint extract. Cover and shake well, until mixture is cold.
Strain into a martini glass. If you like, garnish with a candy cane leaning jauntily on the rim.
Makes 1 Serving
