Get in the holiday spirit by making this easy homemade Candy Cane Vodka. Candy canes dissolve in a jar of vodka, then make for a delightful addition when served in hot chocolate and various mixed drinks throughout the holiday season!
It’s a Monday after the long Thanksgiving holiday, and I don’t know about y’all, but this week is gonna be all about rebooting, not indulging so much and copious amounts of salad.
But before we get into all of that, I’ve made this lovely Candy Cane Vodka for y’all.
Now that it’s December, it is perfectly acceptable to listen to Christmas music at full blast. It’s also acceptable to start baking cookies for your co-workers, friends and neighbors to share some holiday cheer. And it’s totally acceptable to steep some holiday-flavored vodka to spice up a party… or your regular liquor cabinet just because. (Also? It’s really delicious in hot chocolate. I’ve got a dairy-free recipe coming soon, y’all.)
Here’s how you can make your own infused vodka:
- 8 regular-sized candy canes
- 1½ cups vodka (I used Tito's... so use something you like to drink!)
- Unwrap the candy canes and break in half. Place in a mason jar.
- Pour the vodka on top of the candy canes, and allow a few hours to steep. The candy canes will dissolve in the vodka, and then it'll be good to drink after you shake it up!
