The Candy Cane is a fun holiday cocktail that is simple, sweet, and the epitome of our favorite flavors of the season.

The mix is interesting, beginning with a base of berry-flavored vodka on top of which peppermint and chocolate are piled. We cannot forget the sweet grenadine or the cream, which round out the unique layers quite wonderfully.

If you like, skip the splash of soda, though you will find it adds a nice little sparkle and brings a lightness to what can be a rather heavy drink.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the vodka, peppermint schnapps, white creme de cacao, and grenadine into a cocktail shaker with ice.

  2. Strain into a cocktail glass rimmed with crushed peppermint candy.

  3. Fill with half and half.

  4. Top with a splash of soda water.
