Twelve Days of Christmas: Candy Cane Martini

Continuing on in our countdown to Christmas, or Christmas Eve … or is it the new year? Oh who knows, we had too many of these.

Candy Cane Martini

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce peppermint schnapps
  • 1/2 ounce light creme de cocoa

Pour liquors in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a small candy cane.

    Phil, who happened to be right beside me when I opened your post, said… “hummmm, that’s a hangover waiting to happen” πŸ˜‰

    He said he might be able to drink one but not two of these…

    hit “reply” too fast – having said that, it sounds like a perfect drink for this time of the year!

    Before you, I’d had two martinis in my life. The one was disgusting, the other made me hurl. I swear, just one. Then along came Rufus who tempted me with a pumpkin pie martini – things haven’t been the same around here ever since. πŸ™‚

    Candy-Cane-Martini?! Yes, please! This is SO happening… maybe even tonight.

    I bet if you leave one of these with the cookies instead of a glass of milk, you’ll get better gifts.

  7. I’ve always had a weakness for Martinis and for candy walking sticks. But, not together. Dean Martin would be turning in his cocktail shaker:)

    Oh my, just when I thought we’d exhausted all the permutations to the every popular martini, this one comes along! I’m gonna turn this recipe up-side-down and suggest stirring instead! πŸ˜‰

  9. I had to scroll back.. there’s chocolate in there as well! I need a few of these after the week I’ve had!

  10. I’ll have to keep this one clear of my nieces!

    This reminds me of the creme de menthe my parents used to drink every Christmas Eve when I was little. But it’s fancier, of course. Happy Boozy Holidays!

  15. Being a martini lover I’m just drooling over this one! Very nice photo too!
