Cuisine American
Method Mixed
Servings 1 or 2 small martini’s


  • 2 ounces infused Candy Cane Vodka, recipe to follow
  • 2 ounces DiSaronno Amaretto
  • 2 ounces International Delight French Vanilla Creamer
  • Crushed candy canes, for rimming the glass
  • Peppermint stick or candy cane, for garnish
  • 10 full size candy canes, broken in bite size pieces
  • 8 ounces whipped cream vodka


  • Prepare a martini glass by dipping rim of glass in a shallow dish of candy cane vodka or other liquid of choice. Transfer to a shallow dish of crushed candy canes, gently spin in dish until coated. **If you are rimming with large chunks, try brushing a thicker substance such as corn syrup on glass and then gently pressing candy canes onto glass. Set aside.
  • Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to combine, strain out ice and pour into prepared martini glass and garnish with a candy cane. Serve and enjoy!

Donna’s Notes

In a medium size resealable glass jar combine candy canes and vodka. Allow to sit for about 4 hours until candy canes are most or completely dissolved. Strain infusion through a fine mesh strainer to remove any lingering candy cane pieces. Use as desired.

  1. Does the homemade infused vodka taste very different from the Smirnoff Peppermint Twist vodka? I have the whipped vodka and candy canes, but want to know if it changes the flavor profile of the drink.
