Candy Cane Martini – Yummy!

Candy Cane Martinis have been consumed in our house for the last few Christmas seasons. We have searched all corners of the internet looking for the best recipe, and have a favourite. So today I thought I’d share it.

Note that I cannot take credit for it, we found it somewhere on the internet. But unfortunately we have no idea where, so I cannot provide the original source.

For 2 Martini’s mix with ice in a Cocktail Shaker:

  • 5 oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 2 oz White Crème De Menthe
  • ½ oz Peppermint Schnapps

A few tasty tricks:

  • Add a drop or two of food coloring to create your favourite Christmas colour.
  • Add a tasty Christmassy garnish. I’m a big fan of coloured sugar or crushed candy cane on the rim of the glass, and mini candy canes too.
  • Green Crème De Menthe works just as well as White Crème De Menthe. I prefer white only because it provides the opportunity to customize the colour.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Enjoy responsibly!
