If you made candy cane vodka like we did, you might be wondering what to do with it! (Here’s the recipe.)   Of course you could drink it straight :-S but this cocktail is a far more delicate tasting and looking option!

I made a mini version of the drink (as I’m a little bit of a lightweight!).  You can make any size.  The best thing to do is measure the volume of the glass you would like to use and go from there.

You will need:

1 crushed up candy cane

2 parts candy cane vodka

1 part vermouth


cocktail shaker

a dash of lemonade


  • Crush a candy cane and place on a small plate.
  • Carefully wet the rim of your glass with a little water.
  • Dip the rim into the candy cane to coat it.
  • Measure the volume of your glass and divide it by three.
  • In a cocktail shaker combine 2/3 of the glass volume of vodka with 1/3 vermouth.
  • Add  a handful of ice, seal the shaker and shake!!
  • Strain the drink into your glass and if you like, top up with a little lemonade as this is quite a strong drink!

Enjoy a pretty pink Christmas drink

Love Rachel

    That cocktail sounds lovely. I really need to experiment with making more cocktails, I’ve only just got a new bar job.


  • Oh wow that sounds lovely I may be tempted to sit and just eat the crushed candy cane from around the edge. x
