Festive Candy Cane Cocktail

Our German heritage has us celebrating the feast of St.Nicholas today. When our children were little St.Nick used to knock on the doors and windows. He always left a big bag of treats on the front step.

Treats shouldn't just be for children so I am sharing with you a recipe and photo from Martha. (

Makes one cocktail
1 candy cane, crushed, for garnish
2 ounces of strawberry vodka
4 dashes of white creme de menthe
2 1/2 ounces of cranberry juice
Ice cubes
Place the crushed candy canes on a small plate or saucer. Wet the outside rim of a chilled martini glass with water. Holding the glass by the stem, rotate the rim to coat with candy.
In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, creme de menthe, cranberry juice, and ice; shake until well combined. Strain into prepared glass; serve immediately.

This would be a great drink to have on any feast day, not just St.Nick's!
Pin It!
