A Festive Christmas party cocktail, Candy Cane Martinis are made with Homemade Peppermint Infused Vodka that makes an easy homemade holiday gift. Cheers!
Sounds like a holiday party or happy hour is about to happen. Now that is how to celebrate the holidays!
Let’s make some homemade peppermint infused vodka (so easy you won’t believe it) to serve at our holiday parties or give as a gift…
- 1 large bottle vodka
- 16 full-size candy canes
- 2 full-size candy canes crushed reserve for rim garnish
- 3 tablespoons Cream de Cacao - white clear
- 2 tablespoons Peppermint Schnapps
- Marshmallow Creme
- 2 cups candy cane vodka - homemade or Peppermint Vodka
Unwrap 14 full-size candy canes, crush in a food processor for 30 seconds or use a ziplock bag and a rolling pin. Crush to a fine powder.
Using a funnel, pour the candy cane powder into a large pretty glass decorative bottle and fill with vodka. Shake to mix crushed candy cane, it will completely dissolve overnight.
Garnish the martini glass rim: crush 2 full-size candy canes into small pieces. Use a ziplock bag and a rolling pin.
Dip the glass rim in marshmallow cream, spread on a plate, and then dip in the crushed candy cane on a second plate.
Mix, the martini:
Combine 2 cups candy cane vodka (or peppermint vodka), 3 tablespoons white creme de cacao, and 2 tablespoons peppermint schnapps in an ice-filled cocktail shaker.
Shake vigorously. Pour into martini glass. Hang a candy cane off glass rim.
Note: Try Candy Cane Vodka in hot chocolate or eggnog, and this makes a wonderful Christmas gift with a cute tag.
And that is it!!! Homemade Peppermint Vodka..
Wishing you and yours, a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays!!!!
All the Best,
