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!

Did I ever tell you about the time Phill and Beth decided to make jelly bean vodka and set the kitchen on fire?  I walked in to find two big dollops of jelly bean goop on the floor – both balls of blue flame!

Personally I prefer simpler methods of flavouring vodka!!  And if you’re going to indulge, you might aswell indulge in something a little bit special. Candy Cane vodka is a sweet, sharp and fabulously silly drink – the colour of pink sherbert, and it’s the key ingredient for my Mrs Christmas martini.

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.  Keep doing this until there are no solids left.
  • 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 though!  There’s nothing merry about a headache!

Love Rachel ❤️
