Martini Week.... Milky Way Martini

Milky Way Martinis

1/3 Bailey’s Irish Cream
1/3 Butterscotch Schnapps
1/3 White Chocolate Godiva

Put in a shaker with ice and shake. Strain into a martini glass. Enjoy!

You can make as much as you want – so 1/3 can be 1 shot each or if you want to make more than one serving at a time and you have a larger martini mixer, I do 3 shots of each at a time.

Taste just like a milky way - yummmmm!
