The Candy Cane cocktail is a fabulous holiday dessert drink. Of course, you don’t have to save it for dessert – it’s just deliciously sweet enough that you could.
With a name like Candy Cane, you might expect this cocktail to be peppermint flavored, and it certainly does have that element. But there’s so much more: berry vodka and white creme de cacao round out the peppermint schnapps so you have a delicious combination that’s almost hard to pin down. Chocolate, berry and mint – how good can it get?
- 3/4 ounce SKYY Berry vodka
- 3/4 ounce peppermint schnapps
- 3/4 ounce white creme de cacao
- 1/4 ounce grenadine
- Half ‘n’ half
- Crushed hard peppermint candy.
Mix the vodka, peppermint Schnapps, grenadine and creme de cacao with ice in a cocktail shaker. Be sure to shake it up thoroughly. Rim a cocktail glass with crushed hard peppermint candy and pour the shaken mixture into the glass. Top it off with half ‘n’ half.
