"This cinnamon-y coffee based martini is so scrumptious! It makes for a wonderful after dinner cocktail on Christmas Eve. Door County Christmas Coffee is one of my favorite flavored coffees that Door County Coffee carries and each year I anxiously await until it comes out for the season! Make this martini for your loved ones while the snow is falling and the fire is roaring. Be careful, though, these go down easy!"
