Candy Cane Martini

The candy cane martini combines all the best flavors and colors of the season! 

A mix of vanilla vodka, crème de cacao, and peppermint schnapps topped with a candy cane, it’s the perfect Christmas drink.

The Candy Cane Martini blends flavor of mint with a hint of berry and tops it all off with a candy cane. This is a beautiful drink that looks cheerful and fun and tastes the same way.

It also blends vodka with creme de menthe and Chambord. It’s mostly peppermint, but with a strong hint of delicious raspberry.

This is a great drink to make big batch style and serve at a holiday party. You can rim the glasses in advance, mix the drink together in a pitcher, and just pour as needed.

And if the rim is more trouble than you want to go to, just place a mini candy cane in or on top of each glass as a garnish. This looks beautiful, and it’s much easier.

You can also rim glasses with sugar, if you prefer. Or shavings of white chocolate. With a little simple syrup around the rim of your glass, chocolate shavings will stick wonderfully.

However you choose to make this drink, it will be great. And it’s such an easy flavor to love that guests are almost guaranteed to love it.
