Candy Cane Vodka Recipe

I think most of us like a drink at Christmas.  Whether it’s Bucks fizz with breakfast or a glass of Sherry before bed  – it’s seems Christmas is the season to be tipsy!

Well if you’re going to indulge, you might aswell indulge in something a little bit special.  I love to infused vodka and this is a particularly Christmassy infusion.  Candy Cane vodka is a sweet, sharp and fabulously camp drink – the colour of pink sherbert.  And it’s the key ingredient for my Mrs Christmas martini which I’ll share with you next week.

You will need:

500ml of good vodka (cheaper vodka doesn’t infuse as well)

7 full size candy canes

a large glass jar

a glass bottle

a funnel


  • Roughly break up the candy canes and place in the bottom of the jar

  • Cover with 500 ml of vodka
    Stir well
  • Seal and leave to infuse for an hour.
    Stirring and leave to infuse again
  • Once the candy canes have dissolved, use a funnel to pour the vodka into the bottle.
  • Continue to shake the bottle daily and before serving.

Don’t drink too much!  There’s nothing merry about a headache!
