The holidays are definitely upon us and I wanted to take a break from our regular gift guide posts and give you a fun cocktail to try this holiday season. If you’re having a holiday get together and you need a signature cocktail this one is for you. It’s fresh, delicious and absolutely refreshing. The flavors pair perfectly with the season.
This candy cane shooter is so easy to put together. One of my favorite elements is the fact that the glass is rimmed with candy canes which adds to the flavor perfectly. You want to grab some candy canes two or three will do it. Crack them in half and run them through a food processor or food chopper and crush them so that they’re perfect to rim your glass.
Once you have your candy canes chopped, your just dip your shooter glass into some luke warm water and roll it through the candy cane for a perfectly rimmed glass. Super easy. Now, let’s chat about this delicious cocktail! You’re going to want Ketel One Vodka, Peppermint Schnapps, and Sprite. Combine them all in a large pitcher and shake with ice, then strain into your glasses.
A candy cane shooter will be the perfect addition to any holiday gathering and it’s sure to impress. For a little added holiday color and fun I took some toothpicks and added three (frozen) cranberries to each drink for a pop of flavor and a splash of grenadine for the pop of red you see. It’s stunning, they were so pretty I almost didn’t want to pass them out.
